McGovern to become Asst. to City Manager??

The SUN had the news that Mike McGovern has resigned from the Greater Lowell Tech because he will be joining the Murphy administration.

I’ve heard from multiple sources that he will be taking the position of Asst. to the City Manager currently held by Henri Marchand.

There is also speculation Henri Marchand will land in a different city position.

The formal announcement should be coming sometime this week.

If it is indeed that position, it is another good hire by Manager Murphy. Mike brings a solid background in Lowell, has many connections with the City Council and State delegation and has worked with a variety of civic and neighborhood groups throughout the City.

Manager Murphy and Mike have been friendly for many years. It is a solid addition for the Manager in building his team.
