Gov. Deval Patrick locks down State House parking logs

From Boston Herald :

Claiming privacy and security concerns, the Patrick administration is refusing to release records that could show when top state officials arrive for work and how long they stay.

Despite touting transparency — amid a climate of ongoing scandal on Beacon Hill — Gov. Deval Patrick has nixed the release of parking records that could reveal not only officials’ office hours, but also whether lawmakers are honestly claiming their taxpayer-funded travel reimbursements.
