obligation to stay true to the mission of the agency, that they are part of something larger and that something larger can very often, and particularly in the case of dcf, have resources that should be called upon and those other agencies with those resources have to be willing to share. >> reporter: you wrote in your piece that social workers in dcf feel they have better working relationships with government entities outside the executive office of health and human services, schools, courts, law enforcement, than they do with their sister agencies. how can that be? >> isn't that terrible? that's not my observation. that is coming from a survey that was released by the office of the child advocate, just a month or so ago before she stepped down, retired judge judy garinger released a report that the legislature asked her to do. she surveyed dcf social workers. that's what they said. all of those agencies that should have resources to bring
to bear for the families that present themselves and their problems to dcf, poverty, lack of education, mental health issues, substance abuse issues, the list goes on. all of those agencies should be willing partners with dcf to heal these troubled families and protect these children. and they just aren't making those connections. >> reporter: well, you said this starts with leadership. and a lot of the problems we've been seeing, improper screening of foster homes, failure to understand the backgrounds of moving a child, things like that. you came out with a fairly scathing audit in 2014. this is now the baker administration's problem, but what did or didn't the patrick administration do to fix this? >> well, our audit came out and it was looking just at the foster care program. it came out around the same time that the child welfare league of america issued its
our findings were very similar, that there were inadequate staff with lacking appropriate training. there were outdated policies and procedures, not enough managers and poor technology to allow them to share information in productive and efficient manner. there were efforts that were made to implement some of those recommendations, but obviously, they haven't gotten very far. >> none of this comes as a surprise. i still don't get it. i mean, you were in the legislature. you were a committee chair. now you hold statewide office. i mean, what are the politics of this? >> well, if you go back to my time in the legislature, when you, too, were a rookie on beacon hill, you'll remember that going back into the '80s, we had social workers who were protesting in front of the statehouse saying we need to reduce these case loads. it's too much work for us to handle. we can't keep these kids safe. that has been a recurring theme. we have to get honest about what it takes to fix these families and protect these
people of the coffee drinking world, dunkin' has a dark roast coffee that's deliciously roasted just right for a bold start and smooth finish that's never bitter. put down the dark roast you've been putting up with the one you deserve. . welcome back. we're talking with state auditor suzanne bump. jim o'sullivan, political interesting piece in friday's
paper about what appears to be something of a lovefest, not just between the public and governor baker. his approval ratings were off the charts. but between the democratic party and the governor, senator markey has praised him, the speaker, the senate president. are you part of this lovefest? >> well, i do have to give him credit for appointing mary lou sutter to be his secretary of health and human services. >> oversees dcf. >> exactly. back on the dcf issue. >> yeah. >> she started in the trenches. he has confidence in her. i think she has and he is giving her now the leeway to rebuild that agency. i think that's good. i have received cooperation with them thus far on gaining access to information, for us to do our audits, but there are things he's done that i disagree with. i think that the early retirement incentive plan was not a good thing for many agencies, frankly including dcf. they lost a ton of managers at
afford to lose that institutional knowledge. and although they can hire back to fill those spots, it still is -- it adds to the confusion there. and i disagree with his approach to privatization. >> well, now, i wanted to ask you about that. the mbta reform initiatives that were passed allow them to go forward with much more privatization than they had previously been. does that still have to be approved by you? or does that bypass you now? >> well, it bypasses me. >> okay. >> it relieves the administration of making the business case for privatizing any aspect of the mbta. the law is there to make sure that we are going to get a good result, that it's not going to cost us in the end more money if we privatize because that has been a result very often of privatization, because taxpayers are still on the hook. we've got to remember that.
and i think that we're going to see more of those efforts. >> well, just a wild guess. you'll be taking a look at how >> we will. we are waiting for him to come forward with a plan to privatize emergency mental health services in southeastern massachusetts and the cape and the islands. it's a very tricky thing to try to handle, how effectively to deliver mental health services. believe me, i'm not prejudging, but that's going to take a lot of analysis to make sure that we aren't going to leave people alone when they are in a mental health crisis. >> well, i'm interested in following up on both subjects. we'll look forward to having you back to find out what you're observing. thank you. >> thank you. >> state auditor suzanne bump. that's it for us this morning. i return you to my colleagues for more wbz news. >> i think that's us, pamela. thank you so much, john. we're talking about the weather. we're looking for sunshine in our lives.

unusual globes of light appear. ghosts seem to float during the show, like this frightening george boroughs demon. >> good spirits and bad >> okay. >> so the good spirits aren't as exciting to meet. >> no. >> so bad spirits? >> bad spirits like the native american myth, a creature that - >> i don't want to see you! >> so you can see it's sort of made of woods and blackness. and he would seek out, supposedly, native americans and it would kill them. we also tried to bring out the end of the show the historic value in letting you know there were no witches in 1692. innocent people. we want to show you the things that they thought were real at that time. . >> there you go. >> scary! >> spooky! thank you to eric rodenhiser
there, the director. so nice. he set everything up for us. we appreciate it. good characters. spooky! >> really good! we were saying earlier, maybe for the little kids like i have, i think they would be a little scared. >> seems a little too real. >> there are other shows. >> there's a kids show called professor wonder's school of magic. i have all the details and a link to their website for the theater there at cbsboston.com. check it out. >> better for the little ones. mine would be used to esmerelda because that's what i look like when i wake up in the morning! we'll be back.
