My sharp tongue has earned me a rebuke from the spiritual leader of the “Downtown Mob.” You may be surprised to learn, I take note of such admonition.
So, it is with kind spirit that I praise the latest editorial from
the Blog of Record The Lowell Sun.
After nearly four years of living on the economic edge, precipitated by the worst economic downtown since the Great Depression, the city can breathe a sigh of relief. Lowell is not flush in cash by any means, but the Lynch administration has navigated the fiscal ship through turbulent seas and earned Master-and-Commander status.
And unless there is a cataclysmic collapse in state local aid - which isn’t likely - Lowell is in a position to slowly and steadily build its stabilization funds and reserve accounts in the years ahead.
