Just caught this article in the Lynn Journal. http://www.lynnjournal.com/2012/05/15/lower-court-judge-rules-against-residency-requirement-for-police/.
Could this be the beginning of opening the books on residency in this city? I know how you all feel on this. You should know how I feel from previous posts. I'm very much with the court on this decision.
I want this extended in to City Hall. Open up the possibilities for Lynn to hire highly skilled transformers of city functions. People who have taken similar places and brought them to life. Whether it be parking lots that are clean, plans that make sense, permitting that is clear and easy, budgets that get spent correctly, schools that improve, a city clerks office that doesn't feel like the most miserable place on earth. I'll take any and all and I think we need to look within and outside our borders to get the right people in the right jobs citywide!
