During the floor debate on Saturday, April 13, Sen. Joan Lovely gave an impassioned speech to her fellow senators in support of fairness. We are grateful for her leadership, and for her colleagues’ votes to protect toll payers.
We ask the conference committee to keep fairness and local communities in mind as it develops its report. And we ask state leaders to ensure that the final legislation solves this problem for the entire state. The commonwealth is at a crossroads. Let’s choose the path to prosperity, which means a solution that is fair, balanced and farsighted.
Kim Driscoll is the mayor of Salem, and Bill Scanlon is the mayor of Beverly.
