2013 Candidate Questionnaire Responses!

December 6, 2012

The Gall of Dave Conway

by at 11:18 pm.

1a : bile; especially : bile obtained from an animal and used in the arts or medicine
b : something bitter to endure
c : bitterness of spirit : rancor
2: brazen boldness coupled with impudent assurance and insolence

Case in point:

* The School Committee passed Conway’s motion requesting a report from the superintendent on hiring practices in the district for administrators, supervisors and districtwide positions.

He said teachers have approached him with concerns over the consistency and transparency when it comes to hiring. While some positions use a search committee and interviews are held in public, others are not, he said.

“I certainly can understand the frustration that some jobs are out in the open and some are not. I’d like to know why,” he said.


Last Chance to Gripe!

by at 12:21 pm.

Well, if you’re inclined to griping, at least.

The city is asking for feedback on its draft version of the Comprehensive Master Plan: Sustainable Lowell 2025. There will be two public meetings in the new year for the public to bring their feedback:
Monday, January 7th at Alumni Hall, 84 University Ave, UMass Lowell North Campus, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Wednesday, January 9th at Lowell Senior Center, 276 Broadway Street, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

And…”Comments can also be submitted by phone or online to Allegra Williams, Neighborhood Planner at (978) 674-4252 or awilliams@lowellma.gov between December 3rd - January 15th, 2013. Comments will be incorporated into a final plan, which will be presented for adoption and endorsement in the Winter of 2013.”

You can download the draft plan here.
