Ron aint a bad guy he is just dumb! he has been listing to DJ Dweeb for the past few years and getting by advice from Mae Paquette, I am sure Ron will be just fine and he will land on his feet. Ron if I can give you some good advice, when you apply for your next job serving the people of Dracut, practice these very important words-- "You want fries with That?

A wise man once told me,'You can always tell a Frenchman, but not tell him Much" what an Idiot I hope the Town Fathers throw him out of office and don't make a mockery like they did when they caught Golec breaking the law and let him use all of his sick leave (When he wasn't sick) then retire into the night with a slap on his wrist. Mercier should give up his seat NOW!!! Mike Mile's is right on about this guy, what a snake!!

Stealing gas so you can fill up your boat and car $0
Going out on your boat instead of working and getting fired $0
Being stupid enough to text your co-workers from your boat when you're supposed to be working PRICELESS!!
Well I guess they'll be a couple of job openings at the Lowell Water Department!!

He's on PAID administrative leave? So he gets extra vacation time, courtesy of the taxpayers, to use his boat, which apparently has plenty of gas. Classic.

Are there criminal charges coming? This is a double theft against the taxpayers -- once for taking the gas and the other for being MIA at his water department job.

Perhaps it's time for him to use his vast skills and experience at a job in the private sector.

Speaking of which, what a great example to set for the school kids in town.

Another politician who must go!

You Dumb Frog,
your Grand Father must be proud, didn't you lose your job at the House of Correction also? well at least you will have alot of free time in the next week to hold a sign for Mae Paquette!!
Message to:
“Stupid Frog gives me gas”,“Dr. D”,“DJ Dweeb” how many names do you have?
Maybe you should check out Mr. Miles history as a cop taking drugs from drug dealers and using them for his own use!
BTW- I couldn’t help but notice your other post from your home in Dracut on another topic with these acquisitions, could it be that you’re a political insider? It was posted over 14 hours ago, before any of these stories broke! Maybe you should come clean on who you are.

Typical muni job, they are all like that. If no one showed up and went out on their boats instead it would not make a difference.

Is it my imagination or does every Lowell employee live in Dracut with a few exceptions for Chelmsford? No one would condone stealing gas or going boating on city time but is that more criminal than holding a city job and doing zero work? Mercier's clearly both a crook and a moron but is he more of a crook than a city employee accepting a paycheck for doing nothing? There are lots of those in all departments. The city will likely cut a lot of staff in the next budget process but you can bet that no one like Ron Mercier will get cut. Lynch will be tough with him now that he's exposed himself but most city cuts effect the new, the young and the un connected. It's funny, those seem to be the only city, police, fire, school employees who actually work for their pay checks. I actually feel sorry for Lynch having to deal with this system.
