The Boston Globe editorializes today that it was not appropriate for outgoing State Auditor Joe DeNucci to grant 5% raises to employees retroactive to July 1. "DeNucci is clearly taking care of his own, at the expense of taxpayers, as he goes out the door. That’s disappointing. It’s also disappointing that three of five candidates who are seeking to replace him as the state’s fiscal watchdog are unwilling to call him out."   Democrat Mike Lake and Republican Kamal Jain would rescind the raises; Democrats Suzanne Bump (who was endorsed by DeNucci) and Guy Glodis and Republican Mary Connaughton all said they would review pay and staffing levels once elected, but would not call them for to be rescinded now.
