Patrick endures rough spell
Boston.com
March 3: News reports say a bill filed by Patrick to speed construction on former tidelands would help a large Cambridge project for which two of his key aides worked before joining the administration. The bill is designed to reverse a recent Supreme Judicial Court ruling that could require extensive review of permits for developments on landlocked, filled tidelands that do not abut the water. The administration said the two aides, Daniel O'Connell and Greg Bialecki, have recused themselves from any governmental dealings with the NorthPoint project. At left, O'Connell, Massachusetts Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, shook hands with Patrick after a ribbon cutting ceremony at Logan International Airport in Boston, Thursday.
