Lt. Gov. Murray Spending Final Weekday Of Job In Western Mass.

BOSTON (AP) — Outgoing Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray is spending a portion of his final weekday in office in western Massachusetts.

Murray joined Gov. Deval Patrick on Friday for a tour of a farm in Westfield. The administration used the event to announce $700,000 in grants for 11 agricultural projects, including a winery at the Kosinski farm.

The grants were made through a program that aids commercial farming on land that has been protected from development.

Murray officially leaves office on Sunday after about 6 ½ years as lieutenant governor. He resigned to accept a position as head of the private Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Murray is also scheduled to attend his last meeting of Patrick’s cabinet, which is also being held in Westfield on Friday.
