Council’s mayor vote can make statement!

gang of 3

If You haven’t read today’s SUN Editorial you should….They call for the Elliott supporters to support Incoming Mayor Ed Kennedy!

For a change the Sun and I agree on things.

Some of Elliott’s colleagues publicly supported his quest for another mayor’s term, and probably feel loyalty bound to at least initially offer a vote in his name before joining with the majority in electing Kennedy.

We feel those councilors could best signal their intention to continue their collective work in Lowell’s best interests by joining with Kennedy’s backers and selecting him unanimously on the first ballot.

The sum of the council is more important than any of its parts, and that should be its mindset as we enter 2016.
