New Common Councillor To Be Sworn In

Tonight's meeting of Common Council will begin with the swearing in of Gerry Lowe who won the byelection in Ward 3 earlier this month.

Lowe tells CHSJ News Ward 3 is the most diverse in the with as it stretches from the lower west side through the south end all the way to McAllister Drive with a myriad of issues which include crime, redevelopment and potholes. 

He maintains there are incentives the city could offer builders that wouldn't cost a potload of money because there are too many vacant lots around town. Lowe has been serving on the city's Planning Advisory Committee prior to his byelection win .

Lowe,  who grew up on Broad Street, says he would like to see development taking place from deep in the south end up to King Street instead of the other way around.
