Never Forget Where You Came From

On Sunday, June 27th, the Lowell Housing Authority and the City of Lowell had the honor of dedicating the bridge on Market Street to Philip L. Shea.

Philip L. Shea is a proud Lowell native with a lifetime of accomplishments. Shea grew up in Lowell’s public housing at 82 Lewis Street in the Acre’s North Common Village. Throughout his career, Shea was instrumental in developing federal, state and local partnerships to revitalize the City of Lowell and is widely recognized for his leadership and mentorship of young public servants to ensure they reach their full potential.  Shea holds the special distinction of being the only Lowell elected official to have served in the Lowell City Council, the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and the State Senate. Shea currently serves as the Chairperson of the Lowell Housing Authority.

Congratulations Chairman Shea! Thank you to all of the family and friends who joined us for the occasion.
