After serving years in the House from Massachusetts, Martin Meehan will be leaving Congress to take over as Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. One of the most powerful members of Massachusetts’ congressional delegation, as chairman of the Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Meehan has led the way on issues such as the Walter Reed scandal, elimination of the folly known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and a string of liberal causes.
He will be missed.
Already 8 challengers have lined up to vie for his seat.
Glad u mentioned Martin Meehan. He will be missed that is for sure. Lets hope he will be remembered for the good work in congress and not for any fallout of $5 plus million still in his campaign funds. He still has to figure out what to do with the money.
