Patrick Cook is the Vice-President of Administration at Middlesex Community College and a lifelong Lowellian.
He started his career as a police reporter at the Lowell Sun and went on to roles as Communications Director for the Lowell Police Department and District Director for U.S. Congressman Marty Meehan before his current gig.
Besides being obsessed with Lowell history, he’s also our resident go-to geek for movie and television pop culture, comic books, running, and Bruce Springsteen. In his youth, Pat was a regular at Lowell fixtures such as Palmer News, the Dutch Tea Room, O-Ray-O restaurant, Page’s soda fountain, the Yum Yum Shop and the Giant Store lunch counter.
Why Patrick joined Inside Lowell: “I grew up in Lowell and have raised my family here, and care deeply about the history, present, and future of the city. There’s an infinite amount of stories the emanate from this city and its neighbors, and we need to do whatever we can to chronicle those stories and celebrate what makes this area so unique. I’m really looking forward to connecting and re-connecting with folks through this much needed and welcomed platform on Inside Lowell.”
