State Sen. Humason wants answers after Soldiers Home resignations

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – There’s a lot of uncertainty about who will run the Holyoke Soldiers Home after three of the facility’s leadership abruptly resigned.

The home’s superintendent, deputy superintendent, and the chair of the board of trustees wouldn’t explain why they’re all leaving at once.

22News talked to State Senator Don Humason for answers, and he’s also concerned. Humason said, “Boston’s never really known how to treat the Soldiers Home. It’s kind of a standalone institution here. There are some issues that I’d like to get to the bottom of.”

Senator Humason did go on to say that Governor Baker has shown continued support for the Soldiers Home and that he too wants to get to the bottom of the resignations.

The Holyoke Soldiers’ Home cares for more than 2,000 veterans each year.
