Galvin pouts

Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin is a typical politician. If things don’t go his way, he’ll make you pay. Case in point: despite his best efforts, his parish in Brighton is closing, so he’s filing legislation to punish the archdiocese. Specifically, the bill would require private, charter, and parochial schools to give 100 days notice before they close. The aim of the law is to make life difficult for the archdiocese and to show them that he has political clout and he’s unhappy, not just about his parish closing, but also about the sale of the chancery property to Boston College.

Galvin has aspirations to higher office, and wants people to know about it. This is the ultimate, “Do you know who I am?” moment.
