Letter: Managing change in Beverly


How our North Beverly neighbors have been treated is or should be a warning to each of us. Beverly needs to change how it governs. One day you could awaken to find a natural gas fracking site is being proposed next door to you that has been in the planning stage for the past 18 months without any public discussion … then what?

Are we being told the truth or are we being bamboozled?

I strongly urge all of us to get off the couch and vote “No” in the upcoming referendum on Feb. 8th at Beverly High School. Follow the crowds.

Vote “No” to assert your disdain for the way Beverly has managed the change process not only for our North Beverly neighbors but for all of its citizens.

Now ... about my sidewalk repair.
