So just a few weeks in office and Deval Patrick has already had to apologize for a couple of missteps. First he upgraded the Governor's car from a Ford Crown Vic to a Cadillac. Now there were apparently some legit reasons for the change but the cost was several hundred dollars more per month than what was paid for his Republican predecessors car. Additionally Patrick had his office redecorated and this too was quite expensive. In both cases Patrick apologized and paid for each expenditure out of pocket. He needs to be aware that people will be keeping an eye on him.
