VALANZOLA: Roche Should Have Been Out Months Ago

Legislators Should Not Have Sat Quietly On Sidelines

Rockland, MA – Today Rockland Selectman and candidate for State Representative, Lou Valanzola, reacted to the resignation of the Department of Children and Families Commissioner Olga Roche.

“As a father I find it disturbing that it took this long for her to resign.  The Governor should have fired her months ago,” said Valanzola.

“It is clear from today’s press conference that he was reluctant to let the Commissioner go.  If legislative leaders had joined a handful of members who called for her firing months ago maybe the recent tragedies could have been avoided.  Unfortunately, this is another example of failed leadership at the State House.  The people deserve better,” said Valanzola.

Lou Valanzola is currently employed as a Controller in Brockton.   He earned a degree in Accounting from Bentley University in 1984.  In addition to being a Selectman in Rockland, he’s also been involved in the community as a member of the Cable TV advisory board.  He was also a member of the volunteer Crossing guard committee which returned them in 2002 after a 12 year hiatus.  He also coached little league baseball and girls basketball.   He is also a member of the Rockland LION’s club.
