Early Life and Education
Jack Lally, an 18-year-old college student elected to the Brockton City Council at age 18, expressed his appreciation for voters taking a chance by electing him and plans on choosing morning classes next semester to accommodate his meetings in time with time for City Council meetings and saving money by staying on his parents’ health insurance instead of using the $10k stipend provided for council members by Brockton.
Lally has also established his own management company, Spectacle Management. Through this venture he promotes concerts, theatre performances and comedy at 13 venues throughout five New England states. Furthermore, Lally sits on several boards such as Greater Merrimack Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau board as a director and is co-chairing Lowell Winterfest fundraising committee with Chris Dick (co-chairing in both instances) along with Trinity EMS directorship.

He has served as a New Jersey High School Ice Hockey Official and Lacrosse game assignor, working numerous State Championships. Additionally, he has officiated College level games.
Two years ago, Brockton resident Jack Lally made headlines when he became one of two 18-year olds elected to City Council at once. His youth won him votes in Ward 6 by double their margin of victory; and after being reelected with doubled margins for another two-year term. Since then he has become a beloved member of his community with a dedicated following who credit him with helping younger residents engage more fully in civic affairs.
Achievement and Honors

A longtime supporter of Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation and passionate about increasing access to pulmonary care services, he donated $1.5 million towards this facility which is part of KentuckyOne Health. His contributions have made an immeasurable difference in patients across Kentucky’s One Health system.
