Quincy’s director of older services on administrative leave amid investigation – NBC Boston

A city official in Quincy, Massachusetts, is on administrative leave amid an investigation, according to city staff, although it was not immediately clear what the investigation is looking into.

Elder Services Director Tom Clasby’s paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation was confirmed Saturday by Christopher Walker, the Quincy mayor’s chief of staff.

Walker said the investigation is related to “city policies and procedures,” but did not provide more information.

The Department of Elder Services describes its role on its website: “We provide services to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Establish support groups to meet specific needs. Sponsor fitness and sporting events. Offer recreational and social gatherings. Provide outreach at many different levels, such as legal services, housing assistance and referral services to a wide range of aged care facilities. In response to the growing need for transport, we provide medical and social transport.

Clasby, who still appears on the department’s website, introduced the Quincy Council on Aging’s most recent newsletter, for May 2024.
