Springfield Mayor Domenic J. Sarno's issued the following statement Wednesday on the departure of Lt. Gov. Tim Murray:
"Lt. Gov. Murray has been a true friend to me, the City of Springfield and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. His departure will leave a hole in the administration that will not be filled easily. As a former Mayor he understands the needs and pressures that municipalities face, and he worked hard as our champion in state government. I will miss the terrific partnership he had with the city of Springfield. Whenever we were in need he was always one of the first to ask, 'how I can help?' I wish nothing but the best of luck to him and his family as they begin a new chapter in their lives."
