MA Has History of Elected Officials Leaving Early

Gov. Deval Patrick responds to whether or not Lt. Gov. Tim Murray's departure is similar to that of other notable departures from Beacon Hill by governors over the years.

As Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Tim Murray conducts his final full week in state government, he finds himself close to joining familiar ranks of several top elected Bay State officials in the not too distant past.

Murray, like with recent governors William Weld and Paul Cellucci, will not finish his last elected term in office.

After this coming Sunday, Murray, a Democrat, will become the new president and CEO of his hometown Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, a decision he announced last week.

The decision once again raised questions about whether Gov. Deval Patrick will complete his term own term set to expire in early 2015.

Weld, a Republican, left the corner office in the mid-’90s after he was tabbed by President Bill Clinton to be ambassador to Mexico, however he later withdrew his nomination and was never confirmed by the U.S. Senate

Cellucci, also a Republican, didn’t finish his term either after he was confirmed to be President George W. Bush’s ambassador to Canada in 2001. read more
