The Town of Townsend, Massachusetts sent out an Every Door Direct Mail piece urging residents to attend a special town meeting with Kinder Morgan,as well as promoted the meeting on the bi-weekly live local cable selectmen meeting show.This is unheard of in Townsend,to send out a direct mail,and the town received a phenomenal response.Standing room only.Not many of the "orange shirts" were able to shuffle into the room in time for photos.
No district legislators were present.
The meeting gave Kinder Morgan an opportunity to explain exactly where it may be laying long lines of gascious pipe out in the woods of Massachusetts and it also gave residents a chance to make their voices heard and get some answers to their questions (and some evasive bullshit) from Kinder Morgan lobbyist.
So,The Messenger dropped in Nashoba Valley today.It contains pages two,three and six (not to mention the front cover) featuring articles on the proposed pipeline path.In an editorial,a quote from Ms. Candy Mountain of Richmond,MA,where three pipelines already run, "If the federal government says it's going to happen and the state government says it's going to happen,then it's going to happen."
In a protest there are no wisely chosen battles.Barrage the lobbyist's every point with critique or an absolute statement,the entity's every move expose for the negative perspectives the lobbyist would never approach and if confronted with,evade.
In the end it's Unitil and National Grid we'll be buying the gas from just like we do now and these companies have money to burn on PR campaigns,lobbying the legislature to create little monopolized territories for each of them.
Personally,I don't want to see it go through Townsend.Townsend has the most conservation land of any municipality in Massachusetts.
Is it 66000 signatures to get a veto referendum on the ballot?
