Who's In Charge?

So, who's in charge? State House News Service reports:

Senate President Therese Murray questioned Tuesday whether Transportation Secretary James Aloisi was speaking for Gov. Deval Patrick when he unveiled a proposal to sell or lease the 11 service area plazas on the Mass. Turnpike. “Did that come from the governor? I thought that came from Jim Aloisi,” Murray said when asked about the privatization move. “When I talked to Jim when he was going to take the job, he told me he’d be his own person and he had been told that he’d be his own person, so I assume it just came from Jim.”

I thought Aloisi was just supposed to be the "fixer" with the legislature?
