Probably the largest economic threat at the moment to Newburyport, which would effect everyone in a major way, is the proposal by the MBTA to cutback train services from Boston to Newburyport. (More on why this is true later.)
It is really important for us as a city to let the MBTA know that this would be completely unacceptable.
You can go directly to the MBTA website and leave them a message here.
Also send at least an email to Newburyport’s State Senator Steven Baddour and State Representative Mike Costello letting them know that this is unacceptable.
Email for Steven Baddour is here.
Email for Mike Costello is here.
For a more detailed information on what to do go here. (For some reason I cannot make the link go to the exact post, so you want April 20, 2009 “Let’s Make Some Lead Balloons.”)
