Tuesday is meeting day in Lynn. Usually, they're staggered so one can make the rounds or go to all of them. This is not the case on Tuesday, January 7th.
From Saturday 2/4 in the Item - "Lynn Councilor upset over timing of CFO candidate meeting" He should be. The MBTA's Public Hearing in Lynn on fare hikes and cutbacks in service is the main conflict.
I can't comment on the qualifications of Stephen Spencer. Perhaps he is the best candidate. However, the quotes in the article about him are for the most part disturbingly irrelevant. I don't know if that's just what the Item chose to run, or if they're all that was said. From my point of view, knowing his family is irrelevant. Having known him beforehand, is irrelevant. The fact that he is from Lynn, is also irrelevant. Cyr more or less says that it's not how it looks. Maybe not. Let's move the meeting.
I understand the article is more about the unfortunate timing of one meeting,
We can not move the MBTA hearing, but we can move the other
I'll be at the MBTA hearing, from 6 - 8pm in City Hall on Tuesday.
