Can We Take Ed Kennedy at His Word?

The Lowell SunMay 17, 2019

At a time when public trust in politicians seems to be at an all-time low, I feel it’s very important to hold politicians to their campaign promises.

So I ask, when is state Sen. Ed Kennedy stepping down from the Lowell City Council as promised?

Several times during his campaign he stated that he would resign once the High School vote was complete ... well, it’s complete. This very paper reported this statement from Kennedy, “In my instance, it’d only be for a few months, after that (loan order) vote, there’d be nothing to compel me to remain on the council.”

The Sun also reported that “Kennedy has vowed that he will stay on the City Council until the loan order vote for the high school project.”
