“Dan Wolf Will Continue His Run for Governor Despite Being Found Ineligible”


State Senator and Democratic candidate for governor Dan Wolf said Wednesday that he would retain his office and continue his campaign despite a ruling from the State Ethics Commission that said his ownership stake in Cape Air actually prevents him from serving in either position. (Kind of a “your money or your life” dilemma if we’ve ever heard one.)

Wolf owns 23 percent of Cape Air, the small airline he founded in 1989, which has contracts with MassPort that allow the airline to fly into and out of Logan Airport. The commission ruled that the relationship “raises substantial issues” under the law that bans state officials from having a financial interest in state contracts. (MassPort’s board is controlled by the governor.)
