Shakeup Begins As Patrick Prepares For Second Term
BOSTON (AP) – Two top media aides to Governor Deval Patrick are leaving the administration just weeks after his re-election win.
Press secretary Juan Martinez announced on Friday that he’s departing after four years with the administration to accept a post with the Washington-based Gates Foundation.
Martinez started with the department of Health and Human Services before becoming one of the administration’s top spokesman.
Cyndi Roy, spokeswoman for Administration and Finance Secretary Jay Gonzalez, had earlier announced her decision to take a job with Boston-based public relations firm Regan Communications.
Roy had also been with the administration during all of Patrick’s first term.
Departures are not unusual at the start of second terms.
