Mayor declines DCR post

April 30, 2007

Mayor Tom Ambrosino has formally declined an offer by state Environmental Affairs Director Ian Bowles to head up the state Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) – the agency responsible for maintaining Revere Beach.
In a phone call Monday morning, the mayor told Bowles that he would not accept the post, but rather would seek re-election as mayor of Revere.
Many have postulated that the mayor is interested in a post within state government. The DCR post was apparently offered to him about two or three weeks ago. After a vacation two weeks ago, the mayor met with Bowles on April 23rd for most of the morning at the State House. Apparently, he took a week to consider the offer and declined it this morning.
