Kendall Wallace put this out there in his Sun Saturday Chat:
“The other dynamic to watch in the council race is the potential of two young professionals, one male and one female, running. I had a pretty strong indication that both are poised for a campaign this fall.”
It didn’t take long for people to start to speculate who he was talking about. Two names that have floated to the top of the bubble are:
Marie Sheehy who has worked part-time for the City Law dept. for many years
Former Acting City Clerk Brian Leahy who also at one time worked for the City Law dept.
Sheehy is part of a well known/well respected Lowell family apparently resigned sometime in the last week or so and Leahy has opened his own successful law practice. They would fall into the “young professionals” Mr. Wallace referred to.
Both have strong name recognition.
We haven’t heard anything more about Marie’s mom Molly running for the School Committee.
If either would like to confirm and offer a statement about why they are running I will be glad to post it for them.
