LOWELL — City Councilor Rodney Elliott has secured the commitments necessary to become the city’s next mayor, a post he has long sought.
Councilor-Elect Dan Rourke told The Sun Friday morning he will support Elliott, giving Elliott the five votes he would need when the new council votes in January to select the mayor.
Rourke said he made the commitment after several extensive conversations with Elliott this week. Rourke said he was pleased Elliott told him he will be a positive voice for the city.
Rest of the Sun write up here from LiL’s best buddy Lyle Moran. “Mr. Lynne” and the other wives and spouses over at LiL better hide the cutlery at their houses. Jack Mitchell might actually consider joining the Taliban to get out of Lowell. Watching them unravel this week from a far has been nothing short of the Superbowl of Schadenfreude for me. If that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.
