Friday, after the normal Friday Morning Homelessness Conference meeting in the Planning Conference Room, I wandered over to the Elections Division to pick up some data the ladies there had printed out for me on the Presidential Primary. Fodder for a future post.
Then I went upstairs to see if Greg Page was still the Mayor's Aide. He was. I also met Gordan, who is the Intern, from UMass Lowell. Gordan is an immigrant from Ghana. His story is apparently in a book. I am thinking The Big Move: Immigrant Voices from a Mill City, by Robert Forrant and Christoph Strobel. At any rate, I was impressed by Gordan.
While I was there someone came in with food for the food drive, which was covered in yesterday's edition of The [Lowell] Sun. The reporter was Ms Jen Myers.
Speaking of The [Lowell] Sun, today's "Column" suggests that Mr Page forgot his place in trying to arrange for our Beacon Hill delegation to tag up with City leadership. The way it was written up seemed OOC ♠ for Greg, as I know him. And, he, Greg, told me it didn't go down that way. New guy getting the normal hazing? Probably. I'm a fighter pilot. I know that the Fresh New Guy (FNG) has to run the gauntlet. OK, but, it shouldn't go on too long. We have important issues that we need to pull together on.
