Today is Elizabeth Crowley’s first day as a member of the City Council. After being sworn in in front of her new colleagues, Crowley said she knows what it’s like to be part of a big family.
“My parents had 15 children,” said Crowley, whose father and mother both also served in the City Council. “I know sometimes it can be a little dysfunctional, but at the end of the day, we work hard together.”
Gallagher resigned after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a woman, which create the vacancy that Crowley eventually filled.
