If you read The Sun, watch City Life or listen to WCAP; you'll notice they mention that the discussion of 'Lowell politics' has moved to Facebook.
Some of it has moved to this place - Lowell Live Feed Forum (Link)
Most of it occurs in these two blogs and their corresponding Facebook outlets:
RichardHowe.com – Lowell Politics and History (Link) - Richard Howe Facebook (Link)
The Lowell Curmudgeon (Link) - Gerry Nutter's Facebook (Link)
There are several fine Lowell blogs that you can link to from here, or those cited above.
PS. Don't expect to see much posted on this blog, as the conversation is happening on Facebook.
