For John, BLUF: Candidates are emerging. Nothing to see here; just move along.
On City Life this morning Host George Anthes asked former City Councilor Joe Mendonça if he would be running this year, for City Council, and Joe said yes.
Then Host George Anthes asked GLTHS Committee Member Ray Boutin if he was running for anything this year and Mr Boutin said he would be running for a full term at Greater Lowell Technical High School.
Not on the show, last Sunday, someone asked me if I would be running for Lowell School Committee. My response was like that of then Episcopal Father (later R/C Cardinal) Henry Edward Manning, "Only if they need me to solve a crisis".♠ I said that if no one else ran I would, but I would rather not. I say let Fred Bahou run. He has the time and this time it would pay him some money. Yes, I think that is a winner.
Regards — Cliff
