Graduate strikes it rich, help’s state’s poorest

Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance Commissioner Jeff McCue was a lacrosse-playing student at Merrimack College before he started on a career in civil service. Then he hit it big in the lottery about four years ago and surrendered his job as vice chancellor of human resources for UMass Boston to relax and enjoy the good life. Even endless matches of golf can get tedious, though, so he accepted Gov. Charlie Baker’s offer to lead the agency that oversees food stamps and welfare.
