We don’t care whether the administrator of the state hospital is a Democrat or Republican. Frankly, we don’t want that official to cozy up to any governor or elected official.
Rather, the administrator should focus on the job at hand.
Troy Jones, the hospital’s chief for the last two and a half years, hasn’t been a political guy, thankfully. Not long before he took the reins, the administrator’s position was made exempt — in other words, an appointee of the governor.
