good riddance!!! jarret barrios was yet another puppet for kathleen dennehy and the department of correction. meeting after meeting with him about human rights abuse in prison was a serious joke. he was unwilling to really take the needed steps to stop the cycle of violence on the inside. it is quite fitting that he is going to a "health" insurance company as he also abandoned the constitutional amendment to make healthcare a human right in massachusetts and instead supported the heinous act that did get passed that is screwing low income families all over massachusetts. see you later jarrett barrios!!! (that said, we'll probably get someone far worse to replace him and that sucks)

I think Barrios was a mixed bag. On most positions he was right - and it's certainly nice to have an out, proud and powerful politician. However, there were some things he did at times that really rubbed me the wrong way.

So, yea, I'm sad to see him go, but I don't think it's impossible to replace him.
