I would like to address a recently posted comment from former Trustee Georgiana Grant (see: “My Moment of Delirious Schadenfreude”).
For the commenter in which she states of irresponsible and spreading half-truths and unfounded rumors concerning the waste industry to residents and officials in Croton; For your information, The Woburn Neighborhood Association, Inc. has been recognized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for our “Outstanding Activism” and has received over $100,000 in Grants and Awards that are used to find the truth. We represent over 225,000 residents in 6 bordering communities along the Aberjona River (See: Civil Action Movie).
The WNA has also appeared on the front cover of Parade Magazine on January 25, 2004 in a story written by Micah Morrison “Why We Have The Right To Know” of how we uncovered the truth under the Freedom of Information Act and stopped an additional One Million Tons of Contaminated Soils from being dumped into our environment. And, on February 6, 2004, Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont applauded our efforts in Congress and read on the floor of Congress into the Congressional Record of the United States as stated in Volume 150 of the Congressional Record.
We also publish 2 newsletters on two different websites www.aberjonastudy.org and www.woburnneighborhood.com. So Ms. Grant you should think twice before attacking anyone, especially those who do good not only in their communities but yours also.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed it’s the only thing that ever has. “Margaret Mead”
