  1. I hope this issue gets the attention and action
    it needs from the governors office! When it
    comes to community health and safety,
    these policy decisions require more thorough
    analysis and more common sense! Best of luck
    to Mr. Philipps and the Weymouth community.
    Well written and informative story.

  2. Thanks, Nathan!

    @MassGovernor, please address these issues:
    ‘(A)ll of the dump trucks leaving the site must be properly decontaminated, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) must test for asbestos in the bricks and coal layers in the foundation of the land where the compressor is being built, and Governor Charlie Baker’s administration must commit to installing and operating an air quality monitor. ‘

  3. This is truly admirable. Thank you for bringing attention to this important issue, and informing the rest of us. This is deeply concerning , to say the least.
