For John, BLUF: Going to fundraising parties is the price of local democracy. Nothing to see here; just move along.
First off is Noelle Creegan's fundraising event tonight, Thursday, 27 April, from 6-9 PM, at the Old Court.
Noelle is running as a challenger for Lowell School Committee. As the late Bill Taupier, former Lowell City Manager, used to say, the School Committee is more important than the City Council.
So consider coming out to 29 Central Street and The Old Court, to support Noelle Creegan.
But, Noelle is not alone in this race. There is also Dan Shanahan, also a challenger. His Fundraiser will be Friday, 5 May. Also at The Old Court, but from 7 to 10 PM.
And, somewhere out there is Gerry Nutter, who is planning his own School Committee race fundraiser.
If you think you know what the problems are and you have some solutions, you too should consider running. It is not too late. You only need 50 good signatures on a petition, which will be available on 1 June, in the Election Office in the basement of City Hall.
Regards — Cliff
