hahah good one..

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

Maybe they are hiding Whitey B. In the basement of city Hall. hmm

Lowell has been corrupt for so many years. all the city jobs are fixed and we all know it.

My brother should have had a city job. He had the education and the experience. He could never get passed that door. They were afraid i think because we came from an honest family.

That's how i see it now. They didn't want anyone in because they were afraid once in we would catch onto their crap.

Well it has hit the fan and what goes around comes around can't ring so true now.

Throughout my life growing up there I would hear the stories. I couldn't believe they could get away with favoritism they did all these years.

My father was a good man. But he knew what was going on. He couldn't do anything either about it or else he would have been thrown to the sharks.

The city stinks and so do the politicians. Phony as they all are and the workers are losers. I always wondered how they all got their jobs.

Makes me sick and I can't wait to see the names and the arrest or whatever the FBI is looking for.

I'm sure it is going to make a lot of people angry when we really find out what went on and how many people were affected by the actions of those morons that run city hall.

sick sick I'm glad I left.

All a Bunch of corrupt arsses and I hope to see them get what they deserve now.

What they did as far as keeping city hall a closed social click made the people who could have done the job right in the first place either leave town or made them feel like losers. Question their qualifications at times.

Why didn't I get the job? What was it I didn't have? I'm sure many who applied questioned. The question they kept to themselves was. Who didn't I know who could get me that job?

I would rather get a job on my own merit than to have some jack arss hand it to me.

Boy it brings back so many memories and anger to see all this come back. I hope they fry them!

I agree with this statement one-hundred and ten percent!!! In Lowell it was NEVER what your qualifications were, but rather who you knew or who you were sleeping with. I would never play that game because I was well educated and always believed in myself. I had planned to fight this unfairness and corruption but fate had other plans for me in the form of a little girl. So I left Lowell, and my professional life took a back seat. My only question is that how did someone as intelligent, competent, consciences, hard-working and professional as City Manager Bernie Lynch crack that corrupt ceiling of Lowell politics and become its city manager???

Taupier was in getting abatements as much as Tully, I feds should look into his activities too, pompus ass he is. His connections to Wallace and Coggins. I look forward to seeing when the DPD is reviewed, the kickbacks Coggins did. Did no one notice that when the requested all the records on Kaz properties one of the homes in the mix was Coggins, watch out buddy they are coming for you next and you messed with federal funds!!!

"My only question is that how did someone as intelligent, competent, consciences, hard-working and professional as City Manager Bernie Lynch crack that corrupt ceiling of Lowell politics and become its city manager???" You didn't know that ask around Chelmsford the flings that went on a Town hall with Mr Lynch, he had to get out of Town!!

I never understood how Taupier got to where he did in this city as well. Wasn't he kicked out of the last city job he had before he came to Lowell?

Slim ball is what comes to mind when i think of Taupier and also look into his own family connections in the city.

Who's sitting where there? Really it has just teed me off to watch these people act so pompish and get away with it.

I think the feds should really do a thorough job in their investigation with the goings on with the city of Lowell and it's politicians.

All of them self serving. Niki, Marty and the rest they all serve no one but themselves it's a bunch of BS.

Go back and look at the Bank thing in the 80's with Comfed this is no different in fact it's probably most of the same players to. Just a little different game.

How many people got good loans back then and bought big homes or built. A special few that's who. And who worked for them and the ones who were also up their arses.

I hope they all go down. It's about time.

Unless your whit the FBI, You dont no that,
So what your doing is making false statements,
Ill be watching to see if you anser whit what you know for sure, not what you think,
Bet you cant anser where you got your information.
Just another I know everything,
What a stupid statement for you to make.
Ill tell you who dont know anything its You.
You dont know your arzz from your elbow.

Read the paper dipsh*t! There's the proof! Those were her own words and I didn't say she didn't know LEMAY, she said, and I repeated, that she didn't know Kazanjian that well prior to him being elected a city councilor. Pa-Leez you hack! Get yo Sh*t Str8!

Let me tell you this SLA, you stick up for Rita quite a bit, actually all the time. You are either Rita, a hack that she got a job for in the city, or just have the inability to see through people. You have the right to like who you want and stand by those that you want, but time to stop trying to shoot down others who dig up dirt on your cronies. Let's see how much chirping you are doing when the feds clean house...remember, they are not investigating these scumbags to justify their work week....there's lots of dirt my friend, and I would be willing to bet Rita is in some fashion affiliated with the dirt. Just like Kaz, and Tully, and Cox, etc.

Just like you stand by Rita; Rita stood by Kaz. Be careful who you associate yourself with.

Have a good day! especially when the feds sweep through the city!

i HAVE never ever met Rita. And thats the truth,
I just know alot of people who need help. She is the one who will help you,
Ther is a reason why she always tops the ticket,
Yes I do stick up for her all the time,
And untill something changes my mind, I will continue to support her,
Dont you think every one will be questioned,
Does not mean your guilty of anything,
If after this is all done, And if she is found guilty of anything,
I will give you an apology,
And if Im right I will expect one from you.

Serious folks I can't wait to find out what all this is about as much as the next person.

But all the names being thrown around in this investigation and who is investigating them is no small matter.

Something really went down and it is not all related to here. Kaz has connections in Florida and had a few issues down there so where else did this man and his gang travel as far as the dirty deeds go?

All I can say is all theses years it was common knowledge that these folks ran the city and if you didn't know any of them you didn't stand a chance getting a city job.

It was a club and if you didn't belong (meaning if you were not related in anyway) you were on the out zone. I can not wait to find out what these scum bags have really done that we don't already know.

And not that I can put my finger on any one thing either there is just so much. But the big picture was always clear. They were political thugs.

Throw the book at them. But at least let the FEDs do their jobs to get to the bottom of whatever it is they are going after.

What brought the pot to a boil in the first place and who turned down the pot and what has been scooped up out of the pot is what I can't wait to read.

Just to add and i know we all know this. This is not a unique situation. This goes on all over the country and beyond this is just slime on the top. This is small potatoes. Wheres the beef?

They are all related in some way and those rats will finally be exposed. People got jobs others were qualified for and family members got them instead it goes way back. Rats!
