Help us speak out

Thank you for Maureen O’Reilly’s excellent reporting (”State House hearing on glyphosate draws local testimony,” Nov. 14) on the presence and impact of local citizens at the State House hearings. Her reporting on Sen. Comerford’s role and comments was especially good. The senator commented that she only got involved after she heard from many citizens in the Ashfield/Conway area about Ever Source’s plan to spray glyphosate along transmission lines. She and her staff then started researching the issues around glyphosate and realized the harm this and other herbicides can do to plants, bees, animals, children and adults. Her response to our concerns renews my belief in representative democracy! If others share our concerns please join us and contact Delta Carney at Help us speak out, continue to organize and get the legislation passed!
