Massachusetts State Police union president resigns.
With intriguing political mayoral primary elections underway today in Braintree and sandal-plagued Fall River, the head of the State Police Association of Massachusetts (“SPAM”) saw the writing on the wall and resigned yesterday in advance of his facing a likely successful recall vote to remove him from office at tomorrow’s SPAM meeting at a Sheraton hotel in Framingham.
The just resigned head of SPAM took over as president of the union last October when his predecessor stepped down amid a federal investigation into the union’s activities and which later resulted in a number of federal indictments.
While the just resigned SPAM president instituted a variety of positive reforms, union membership look to want to make a change.
In turn, time will tell just what sort of change.
