THIS GUY WAS THERE,IS THERE,AND NOW WILL BE THERE. ALOISI HELPED DO IT AND CREATING THE DISGRACEFUL MESS TO BEGIN WITH....THIS IS LIKE HIRING BERNIE MADEOFF TO DEAL WITH THE FINANCIAL BANK AND INVESTMENT CRISIS!

Those that sounded the alarm for decades on the Big Dig in previous Dukakis, Weld, Cellucci,Swift, and Romney Administrations feel Governor Patrick shows a lack of any ethical standards in this appointment. Jim Aloisi is a most competent person that has a resume of self service before public service.
The reporters from the Herald, Globe and other media outlets have also just recently further documented the Aloisi record and most disgusting resume.
As someone who as been there, I have done so also on this personal Blog site as well as a written commentary on many other of the Guilty, Enablers, and Heroes on the Big Dig. Unfortunately, the facts and viewpoints of those who have blown the whistle over the years and doing so now are not listened or taken into consideration.
Governor Patrick who campaigned on Government Reform now has reached a new depth of that by promoting a ring leader Jim Aloisi. Aloisi has highly contributed to inefficiency, waste, mismanagement in our transportation infrastructure that has led to the monumental waste, fraud, abuse, and outright improprieties in several areas due to a lack of oversight and accountability in our transportation spending infrastructure.
Massachusetts truly needs another WARD type Commission more stronger than the one that was formed during the Government Center Scandals. A true independent reform entity that will be listened to and followed for all government contracting.
Does anyone fear based on the Aloisi track record that he is the best person to oversee $Billions in Transportation Agencies worth and contracts?
