Boston's top election officials lack experience

Boston's top election officials lack experience - The Boston Globe: "The top officials running Boston's Election Department, the commissioner and her supervisor, came to their jobs with little or no experience running elections and have had only minimal training since...Secretary of State William F. Galvin, who is making plans to oversee the Boston Election Department, said yesterday that it's important that people with experience be in charge.

"There has to be someone there, whatever their title is, who has the authority and has extensive election experience," he said.

Boston's Election Department has also been grappling with staff and budget cuts in recent years, which employees say has left the department with little institutional memory."
