To quote in full:
Cliff Krieger, the retired Air Force officer and Lowell Republican City Committee member who unsuccessfully challenged state Rep. David Nangle in 2002 and 2004, posts his conservative views on the day's issues online at http://right-side-of-lowell.blogspot.com/Thank you Lowell Sun and thank you to "The Column."
Krieger said the blog was originally intended to be a back-and-forth between himself and former WCAP host George Anthes, who is now hosting a daily show on Lowell cable. Now, Krieger is out on his own and enjoying it.
He said that although he never felt unwelcome to comment on other local blogs, there was a need for a conservative voice among the city's political bloggers, which include the aptly named Left in Lowell and the more centrist Democrats of richardhowe.com.
"I hope to open up the discussion. I would like to get more people talking about the issues of the day, and not just political issues, but also cultural ones," Krieger wrote in an e-mail to The Column.
Regards -- Cliff
