There are two sides to every story, but no matter how the story of Lowell’s latest political feud ends, I know I’m not alone in saying that Wally has earned the respect and admiration of many people across the city.

If you click in through the hyperlink, you’ll find a warm testimonial that asserts that a measure of a person is greater than the sum of their parts. The LTE’s author reminds us of other parts of Wally Bayliss, ones that many of us may not know.

In my haunts, I frequently hear a person or group dissected into components. We weigh the components on a scale of “good ‘n bad,” hoping to rationalize whether we attack, defend or watch in our next move. I think that is human nature and politcal folks fall into this habit, being mostly human. ;v) This LTE reminds us how our bias, the filter we apply in measuring, can skew the measurement, one way or another.

I’ve attended a few License Commission meetings and have watched several more on LTC’s video archive page. I’m convinced that Wally Bayliss is not the right fit for the modern era. It is clear, to me, he does not comprehend the role of the institution he chairs. To let him stay on is to accept a mockery of municipal governance, imho. (more…)
