are we a society of laws or aren't we???
so here we have an illegal act committed by our elected representatives that is confirmed in recorded public comments by at least one of the guilty pols. (it's not like the act isn't its own prima facie case, but to brag about it in the public square??? that's just beyond the pale). so, is this being covered as such in the paper? has anyone filed suit? (no, and no).
this situation is so offensive to me that i have, for the first time in my life, made political contributions and resolved to get active in supporting better candidates for the city council in our next election. oh, i've signed nomination petitions before, but this situation requires of us so much more than that.
one school committee member is up on criminal charges, and the majority of our city council are ignoring state law in corrupt pursuit of bad city government. this isn't good stuff.
hey--here's another city tag line i've heard a few times:
low. lower. lowell.
