Letter to the Editor: Fight back against MBTA bullies

by | Apr 11, 2024 | Letter to Editor

The Preserve and downtown Hopkinton are being targeted by the MBTA rail line bullies. Each of the two, The Preserve and downtown Hopkinton, do not have a voice if dictators are allowed to rule. If the people vote and are for this taking of existing homeowners, then the results will most likely be an increase of traffic congestion. This is a town, not a city. If the dictators win, I believe more schools, police stations, fire stations, ambulances and libraries will be required. If we struggle now with the payment of tax increases, how much more will we pay in the future? Stop this form of dictatorship and preserve our right to vote on this and future issues. Do not let the bullies rule. I deserve at least a vote. Don’t you? What say you?

— Edward Janigan, Hopkinton

    Have you considered providing context before going on a rant? Probably like 5 people know what you’re talking about.
