  4. Senator Tran is the only choiceRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Oct 4 | Lowell Sun

    I am writing today to voice my unconditional support for the re-election of state Sen. Dean Tran on Nov. 6. Sen.

As a first-generation immigrant, he and his family sacrificed everything to flee a waring communist country and, with no guarantees of success, they survived a two-year ordeal to finally make it to the United States to live the American dream.

We invited all 10 to debates this newspaper co-sponsored with Fitchburg State University, and with the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce.

    Sep 8, 2018 | Lowell Sun

    The Board of Parks Commissioners voted to send a petition to explore the creation of a "pocket park" honoring the life of local abolitionist Benjamin Snow Jr. back to the City Council Property Committee without comment Thursday, saying the commission doesn't have jurisdiction over the city-owned land.
