I've got a feeling, a feeling deep inside..Oh yea, oh yea

My feeling is this is just the tip of the ice berg. Rumor has it that the executive director, along with a certian superintendent will also be facing charges. How does that old saying go... "whats good for the Goose is good for the gander"

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.
Mike you don't have to be Perry Mason to scoop the Sun on a story, this has been around for a week now, you surprise me I thought you knew everything but you have your own stuff to cover up with Spencer

Wake up Dracut!!! This guy got bounced from the Billerica HOC for failing a drug test. He then pumps gas for a living (and steals it) and Dracut elected him for their School committee. Really?

Saw Ron Mercier holding a Brian Bond for selectman sign on a Saturday morning at the Shell station in Dracut. That crowd is the gang that couldn't shoot straight.

O Danny Boy the unemployment line is calling you. O Danny Boy O Danny Boy NO ONE WILL MISS YOU SO. WORST WATER UTILITY DEPT HEAD EVER. Knew nothing did noting should be charged with larceny for having the nerve to cash his paycheck every week. Hope Eric G Dennis M or the Grump comes back and applies for the Job. They had the qualifications not Danny Boy. Pretty sad when you make all that money and you have the nerve to make the taxpayers pay for you to fill up a gas can for your generator at your home in HAVERHILL SAY GOODNITE DAN .

Im sure Grampy and the rest of the good ole boys are sitting down at the Budda Bing Sac Club blaming everyone else. I'll bet Baby Huey Zaim will represent Ron, and try and sue the City for wrongful displacement.
Maybe the Ex city Manager can get little Ronnie a new Job at the Hospital with the rest of the Tony Soprano gang.

Oops they did it is right on! Eric G was the man to run that place. Tewksbury saw his qualifications and hired him on the spot. Lowell Water loses all of their best people to other local departments due to the politics in the department. Having experience and all the proper licensing means nothing when it comes to promotions in that place. It's all about the political pull.
