The first 30 days - How's our Mayor Doing?

I wouldn't expect anyone could do much in 30 days. Especially given the cronies she has to deal with to get anything done. I've seen the right thing happen at our Fire Department's top spot. I see diversity in the Mayor's office for the first time in a long time. I saw a positive comment from Jim Cowdell about the Mayor in the Item. That last one kind of shocked me.

I've heard a lot of rumblings about a lack of communciation between the Mayor's office and our other elected officials. I hope that communication becomes a strong focus of her office over the next 60 days. Open government and communication were highlights of her campaign.  School Committee meetings on LynnCAM is a nice step, but we need to start seeing more openness via the city website. Calendar is still lacking and I still find it hard to get anything out of our city government without setting up a meeting at City Hall or requesting documents multiple times via email.

The only email I sent to the Mayor's office (Ms. Cavanaugh) went unreturned.

Not a good sign, but I'm giving it 90 days, before I start coming up with nicknames.

So, what do you think?



  1. i'm giving it 90 days too. if your doing it too. I can imagine the swarm of interest that is flooding the lines ...?

  2. Tim phelan, is that you?


    how about a little bit more context anon?
