The Globe reports that John Buonomo, Middlesex County registrar of probate, was arrested for stealing money from county copiers and change machines at the Registry of Deeds.
Why are registrars of probate still elected officials again? What great policy decisions are they expected to make? Apparently, whether to bring those coins to the bank or dump them all into a CoinStar machine.
