Once again the Lawrence City Council proved to be spineless. I’ve never seen such a group that tables everything for the next meeting. Frank Moran proved to be playing favoritism to his boss the mayor and Eileen Bernal just didn’t want to deal with the situation. We need people on the council who are looking out for the welfare of the people of Lawrence and not fearing the wrath of our mayor. The deputy police chief did a bad thing. He should be responsible for his wrong doing and eliminating his position is one step in doing that. Another is to stop his paycheck. This is common sense but it looks as if our councilors don’t have that. Well, the citizens of Lawrence can do something about this and not vote for these spineless councilors when they run in the next election.
I see another commenter’s point about Andover spending $400,000 on tennis courts. I also agree that this money could be better spent somewhere else. The commenter suggests this money would be more useful going towards teachers, firefighters, and police. I agree. That $400,000 could pay one of each.
