Governor’s Councillor Marilyn Pettito Devaney
Bill Schineller writes, “Marilyn impressed me in March by taking an interest in our issue, picking up the phone to call me, composing and hand-delivering a request to Gov. Baker, and pestering his administration resulting in the Governor asking Secretary Beaton to respond.
His letter is attached, stating his commitment to the preservation of our environmental and natural resources (balanced with clean, reliable, and affordable energy future).
I can vouch for the fact that Marilyn has gone out of her way to help Sudbury.”
Meeting with Sudbury Chamber of Commerce
On May 5th, 2016, Protect Sudbury’s Jim Gish presented an informational talk on the Eversource power line project, and its potential effect on local businesses, to the Sudbury Chamber of Commerce. Read about the meeting here.
Meeting with Environmental League of Massachusetts
Protect Sudbury Directors Jim Gish and Ray Phillips met in June with George Bachrach of the Environmental League of Massachusetts. Great meeting not only because we have ELM’s support but also because of the unique position George is in to assist us as he is an attorney, a former state senator and regularly provides political commentary for Boston area TV and radio, including NECN, WGBH-TV, The Boston Globe, and other media outlets. George was most helpful in providing strategy points as well helping us make further connections with folks who can help. Thank you to the Environmental League of Massachusetts!
Research Team Lead Julie Franco Lieberman and Research team member Melissa Gough met with Water Dept. Superintendent, Rebecca McEnroe this morning to clarify the departments concerns with the Eversource project. Thank you to Rebecca for the formal letter of concern sent to Secretary Beaton and the EFSB.
