While the city’s collective attention is fixed on Rodney and Ed’s campaign for Women’s rights, we thought it would be a good time to shift gears. We like to think of The Cabot as a local blog, rather than a political blog. But with an upcoming City Election in November that will define the scope of the City leadership (ie. A City Manager possibly heading to free agency, New High School, Rodney Elliott starting bikram yoga to manage stress), it can’t be ignored. So we popped over to the MrMillCity storage unit and pulled out a classic…The Lowell City Council Fantasy Draft.
We will be rolling out the results beginning Wednesday, October 30th, wrapping up on that Friday. But feel free to play along at home or in the office.
3 Teams (6 Players Per Team) (Or 6 Teams, 3 players each)
Scoring is based off of the preliminary election seedings.
Player is worth they’re Ranking Value: (So starting out, Rita Mercier is a 1 seed, worth 1 point. Marty Lorrey 9, Genevieve Doyle 17)
1. Rita Mercier (1 Point)
2. Rodney Elliott (2 Points)
3. William F Martin (3 Points)
4. Daniel M Rourke (4 Points)
5. Ed Kennedy (5 Points)
6. James Milinazzo (6 Points)
7. William Samaras (7 Points)
8. John Leahy (8 Points) * assist to Kim Scott.
9. Marty Lorrey (9 Points)

11. Vesna Nuon (11 Points)
12. Corey Belanger (12 Points)
13. Erik Gitschier (13 Points)
14. Derek Mitchell (14 Points)
15. Stacie Hargis (15 Points)
16. Ven Pench (16 Points)
17. Genevieve Doyle (17 Points)
18. Frederick Doyle (18 Points)
+5 for every place of improvement.
(+10 bonus for 3 places or more)
-5 for every place dropped.
(-10 anti-bonus for 3 places or more)
+3 for any challenger finishing Top 9
+ 15 for first overall.
+5 for Second overall.
– 15 for dead last.
So, Fred Doyle is worth 18 points to start but only worth 3 points if he finishes dead last (18-15=3). But if he leap frogs Genevieve, he’s worth 23 points.
If Genevieve sticks it out at 17, she’s worth 17 points out of the gate.
Most cumulative points wins.
