Day #48

I had a meeting with John T., Director of Constituent Services for Gov. Baker today. I felt it was a good meeting, despite my huge irritation with the aggravating new article from Itai Vardi at DeSmogBlog. I was very clear about my feelings regarding what MassDEP did. I was clear about how demoralizing it is to see proof of MassDEP colluding with Spectra. What the heck is the DEP for, then? After reading the article, I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.


This comes on the heels of MassDEP issuing an intent to grant the Chapter 91 Waterways permit once the Wetlands permit has been granted (please, no). Did Spectra play Editor on this document, too? HOW can we trust that ANYONE in Federal or State government  has the public’s best interests at heart?

This dreadful lack of ethics is on YOU:

EEA Secretary Matt Beaton
EEA Undersecretary Ned Bartlett
DEP Commissioner Martin Suuberg
Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito
Gov. Charlie Baker

Mr. Cushing most likely wouldn’t have done what he did if it wasn’t accepted practice within the agency. Gov. Baker, what are you going to do about this?

FOR EASY REFERENCE, let the elected/appointed officials below know how you feel about MassDEP letting Spectra edit the air/noise permit letter:
