wow, all three assessors were connected to city/state officials? now that's a surprise. I can't wait for the FBI to haul the entire city hall office and state reps away in cuffs...it might go down as one of the most corrupt cities in America. How "Inspiring and Unique"!

Rita and Tully seem to think this is a big joke and lie directly to the FBI...nope, never knew Kaz...nope do not know Lemay well (i just visit her twice a week for the past 20 years). Unreal. Lock all those scumbags up and set an example to every municipality...clean up your act or face the consequences.

Just imagine though, if Bernie never actually managed this city, everything we have been hearing about for the past 2 years would have been swept under the rug. No wonder everyone always wanted Kevin Murphy to manage the city. They wanted to keep it all under wraps within the same good 'ole boy network.

Lowell is a disgrace, however getting much better with Bernie up there!

Susan Lemay was Tully's secretary when He was City Manager. He gave her the assessers job and I'm sure she owe's him any favor he ask's for thats how the game is played.

Didn't Tully get released from federal prison way before the end of his sentence because he supposedly was terminally ill? Wasn't that about 10 or more years ago? Must have been a miracle or something that his health took a turn for the better as soon as he got out. Msybe Judge Mazzone should be investigated as a possible saint, since he apparently cured cancer by revising a dying man's sentence.

I am amazed every week it seems there is something about a currupt City employee, it is such a disappointment so many good people have worked so hard to improve the Cities image. Sue Lemay had no experience in assessing she was the City Manager's sectr'y and at a political payback she was given that position. How long has she been running that office? How much damage has been done? How many favors were given? There should be a review of all the politicans properties to see if there are adjustments put on their properties that has helped her stay in that position all these years. If something corrupt was done she should be fired and charged. Like someone said prior Tully was in prison what the hell is he doing walking into the assessors office regularly and also representing taxpayers for abatement. Did he have qualifiations to do this? letters of permission to represent the taxpayer? it smells of him using his past position to get abatements, that sounds illegal to me.

why is tully representing anyone? He is not an attorney and to represent someone in legal matters before a tribunal of any sort is the unlawful practice of law and it is CRIMINAL to do so.

Time to put the azzhole back behind bars where he belongs. Let Pangy help him now.

Joe's son, joe jr had no experience as a housing director but he got the job. oh, he is also in dracut. How did he get the job over qualified people? Was this a secret back door position created for him? Also, look at Middlesex Community College and see who is running that show....the sheehy's and they are also a clerk at juvy court and one is asst city solicitor -- what a joke. They HAVE to post these positions by law but the job is already spoken for. Their postings are a FRAUD on the honest public. These jokers need to go to jail and be disgraced. Too many cowards in lowell that do not want to speak up. If the Feds start applying the right pressure points then someone will give and the proverbial suit will fall apart... go get 'em feds.... right on !!!

time to use this forum to give anonymous tips to the feds to seek out the truth and make our government respected once again and to work for the people. We call upon all good hearted citizens to speak up and post what you know on this site with details and names. Only the truth and not mere speculation is sought.

Joe Tully doesn't know Sue LeMay; Rita Mercier doesn't know Alan Kazanjian. How stupid do they think we are?

There is nothing Joe Tully does that doesn't smack of political favors and other hack-related events.

The best use of my tax dollars is to let the Feds go after these people.

Maybe it`s time for Lowell to secure our borders with Dracut to prevent the influx of criminals.
