Chasing Gov. Baker, DEP Hearing and Press Conference

Wednesday, May 15th:

MothersOutFront was busy today!! We started out trying to talk to the Governor at the Green Ribbon Commission meeting but were asked to leave the premises.

 

Kristine Jelstrup (author and photographer), Pattie Heyman, Amber Martin, Jaclyn Secter, and Ellen Van Bever 

 

Then we followed him to the airport where he was hanging out with Marty Walsh. He spoke with us and so did the press!

Then we raced back to the DEP hearing where they didn’t seem to think putting a toxin spewing Compressor Station in a residential area was a bad idea.

We have our own thoughts on that so held a press conference where at WGBH and WBUR were listening.

We finished up by delivering 1500 signed postcards asking the Governor to be a #ClimateGovernor not #GasGovernor and stop the construction of the Weymouth Compressor Station!!
