By Lee Hammel TELEGRAM & GAZETTE STAFF Scot J. Bove, who last week was demoted from assistant deputy superintendent at the Worcester County Jail and House of Correction, retired before his first shift as a captain at the jail. Mr. Bove, 45, ran for the Democratic nomination for sheriff in September. He had worked at the jail for 27 years. Mr. Bove said yesterday, “I ran to take the politics out of the facility. Obviously it’s continuing to run rampant, and ultimately I wasn’t going to sell my soul for political gain. It was time to go.” He said he retired as of Saturday. Worcester Telegram & Gazette - telegram.com - Bove retires after his demotion, citing 'rampant' politics at jail Anyone want to hazard a guess as to him retiring as a deputy super or a captain's rate? For someone who's dad put him there, was a Lt after about one year, and moved up the admin building without getting dirty, I find his comments almost worthy of needing a psychological evaluation.
