As our local newspaper appears to be nearing the end of a long and sad decline, the good people of Lowell must look elsewhere for information as to what’s happening with local government. For many years Richard Howe and the incomparable richardhowe.com provided excellent previews and recaps of City Council meetings.1 The focus of that website has evolved and, to my knowledge, nobody else has taken up the task. As such, this site demanded creation.
It should be easy for the average citizen to keep tabs on what’s happening. I hope this website makes it slightly easier.
I likely have a screw loose.
1Huge hat-tip to Richard Howe – a major inspiration for this website. To be clear, I’m just ripping him off. I can promise you this site will not be as good.
[UPDATE!] Richard recently returned to covering local politics on a regular basis. Check it out at: https://richardhowe.substack.com/
