I don’t know what bothers me more. Barry Finegold again getting whacked for a STUPID Printing Issue or Debbie Silverstein dismissing it as ‘Not the biggest topic.” No one is saying its the biggest Deb but it is the 2nd time in 4 years that he has screwed up and got caught. Will you overlook laws that you don’t think are a big deal? Isn’t that attitude what we DON’T WANT on Beacon Hill?
Marie Sweeny has a nice post in RICHARDHOWE.COM about being on the cape and a memory from her childhood she shares with us. Hope you enjoy the Cape Marie.
Lynne from LIL can’t catch a break. She posted about a link that might not be secure on the Doherty site and you would have thought she let out National secrets. Doherty has rabid supporters and Lynne makes no bones about her support for Eileen but come on guys give her a break she was making an observation. Her and I don’t agree on much but this time she is 100% in the right.
Speaking of Eileen I spoke with her the night of the debate and she has already spoken with Rep. Murphy about the Cities Home Rule Petition. Rep. Murphy believes many other cities and towns will have submitted their own Home Rule Petitions by the time the Legislature is back in session and that the issue of Plan design will have to be addressed as a whole rather then by a city by city basis. All the Cities and town want is the same set of rules that the State already enjoys when it comes to health Insurance.
I found it interesting that Eileen and Chris are very close on most issues and it looks like they campaign is shaping up as experience versus change. Eileen has experience in elected office and Chris is the voice for change. To me this race is shaping up to be one that will be closer than people originally thought.
The Spinners are getting in on the Political games. John Kerry Bobblehead Night is Monday Aug 23rd ( I wonder if it comes with a toy yacht) while Scott Brown Bobblehead Night is Monday Aug. 30th (Hopefully not from his Cosmo modeling days)
Who has the quicker trigger for jumping on an issue? Dave Conway who wanted to call for a special meeting before any dollar amount is confirmed or Paul Georges who wanted to delay the Duty Asst. position until he could find a way to make sure they were Union jobs ?
The Dracut Police Saga is as long as the Lowell Investigations…never ending. The officers hearing were postponed again.
The Veterans Park in Dracut is a great place. Whether your just going for a nice walk or bringing the kids to cool off in the water or spending the day with a picnic basket. The concession stand is also 1st rate.
No matter the reasons he did what he did, it was sad to hear the FDIC sanctions on Bob Houde formerly of the Lowell Co-Op bank. I remember Houde’ as a Park Instructor with Kathy Kane at McPherson’s Park when I was a kid and Jimmy Rourke was a lifeguard. Those were the good old days!!!
If you’re not familiar with the man in the photo, someone suggested I post a picture of myself for a change. Must be so people know who to avoid when I’m out…I’m better off on WCAP then City Life…I have the face for radio.
