Contact info for local and state officials

Help! We are trying to save a stretch of wetlands behind our school. Yes, we know there are bigger fish to fry, but if you have a moment to weigh in with some of the powers-that-be, it might help. It may seem small with WalMart getting away with filling in lakes and all, but it's still important. See links for copies of letters and other documentation sent to local and state officials. It's a tough fight, since the developer is a state college, and seems above the law in some respects. But it can't hurt to keep pointing out that Massachusetts' land use is expanding at seven times the rate of population growth, and that this is the last remaining sliver of the old Pickman River bed.

Below are contacts of local and state officials, if you want to write, fax, call or email (they seem to be effective in that order). These contacts are all available online, so no invasion of privacy is intended; however, be polite and reasonable as always. There are also plenty of other environmental and neighborhood groups on this list. And of course, if there's an environmental lawyer or something out there who wants to take this on, by all means. Different readers may have varied ideas on who best to contact, whom they might know, etc. Obviously the more people we get in touch with, the better.

Politicians always need support to take strong stands, especially when powerful interests are involved. And while they usually prefer contacts from their own constituents, this is also part of the problem. Developers count on opposition being carved up and localized; it might not hurt for people to get a fax or two from Sweden or Argentina urging Americans not to ruin the planet we all share. . El pueblo unido jamas sera vencido!

WRITE, CALL, FAX OR EMAIL some or all of these officials (or others if you think of any). Try to get 2 or 3 neighbors to do the same. Big developers won't listen unless we can get our elected officials to stand up for us and get others involved. Obviously, the more people we reach, the better.
