Two fire chiefs have received ethics fines for taking Boston Bruins tickets from an ambulance company that does business with their departments, reports the Boston Herald.
Former Melrose Fire Chief John O’Brien and Revere Fire Chief Eugene Doherty each admitted to violating ethics laws for accepting Bruins tickets in 2010 from Cataldo Ambulance Services, according to state officials.
O’Brien paid a $1,500 fine for accepting two tickets to one game while Doherty paid a $3,000 fine for accepting two tickets to two games, officials announced.
According to ethics officials, the city of Melrose gave Cataldo a three-year EMS contract in September 2010 while O’Brien was chief and a member of the committee that reviewed bid proposals. Two months later, he got two Bruins premium club seats from Cataldo that were worth $350, officials said.
