The safest energy choice of all is to get off of #ExplosiveGas and get it out of our homes @MattBeatonEEA @MassDPU @mothersoutfront


It’s time for @MattBeatonEEA to tell the @MassDPU to lead transition away from #ExplosiveGas to heat our homes and protect the PUBLIC instead of the Private Utilities. @MothersOutFront @350Mass



Put the PUBLIC back in the Department of PUBLIC utilities @MattBeatonEEA, we do not want #ExplosiveGas, we want #RenewableEnergy. @MothersOutFront


The @MassDPU is in charge of safety, #ExplosiveGas is not safe! @MattBeatonEEA please LEAD us on the transition to #RenewableEnergy #GreenNewDeal @MothersOutFront
