Congratulations to former Mayor and current Lowell City Councilor, Edward J. Kennedy, on adding another impressive title to his resume: State Senator for the First Middlesex District.
After winning election to the office last November, Senator Kennedy was sworn in with his colleagues from all around the Commonwealth at the start of 191st session of the Massachusetts General Court.
The State Senate also returned to a fully renovated Senate chamber after spending the bulk of the previous session meeting in the Gardner Auditorium.
Kennedy replaces another former Lowell Mayor and current City Manager Eileen Donoghue who had represented Lowell and the other five communities of the district (Dunstable, Groton, Pepperell, Tyngsborough, and Westford) from January 2011 until her appointment as Lowell City Manager in April.
You’ll still see Councilor Kennedy in action on this blog as he intends to continue to serve on the Lowell City Council for the time being until all of the votes on the Lowell High School project are completed.
