Wolf Staying In Mass. Governor’s Race Despite Ethics Commission Ruling

BOSTON (AP) — State Sen. Dan Wolf says he’s planning to continue his run for governor despite a State Ethics Commission ruling that questioned his eligibility citing his ownership stake in Cape Air.

Wolf said he received the opinion last week that found that Cape Air’s agreements to fly in and out of Logan International Airport amounts to a conflict of interest.

Wolf said the commission ruled the only way to end the conflict was for Cape Air to no longer serve Logan or for Wolf to divest all interests in the company he helped create.

The Cape Cod Democrat said the ruling runs counter to an informal opinion offered to him by commission staff when he was first mulling a run.

Wolf describes the ruling as unfortunate and said he’ll work to rectify the situation.
