Thus, when I had a chance to cooperate with Lynne Lupien of Left in Lowell on a non-partisan effort to encourage Lowell voters to vote and to encourage Lowell City Council candidates to tell us, the voters, how they are going to make the city better, I carefully considered and then jumped in with both feet. In fact, I am the Chairman of "Move Lowell Forward" Political Action Committee. My Co-Chairman is Lynne Lupien.
Please visit out website, at http://www.movelowellforward.com and see what we are talking about.
Are key points are:
- Professionalism in city government;
- Economic growth for local jobs and stabilizing the tax rate
- A strong educational system
- Safe and clean neighborhoods
- A better quality of life and effective public services
- Respect for, and adherence to, our Plan E city charter.
But, agreement or disagreement, the most important thing for each of you is involvement. Learn the issues and get out there and vote.
And, before you get to the ballot box, ask questions, write letters, post comments and make contributions to candidates. For incumbent and challenger alike, running is hard. Find one or more candidates you like and support them. Please.
And, please support the "Move Lowell Forward" PAC.
Regards — Cliff
