U.S. Sen. Markey Headlines Anti-Privatization Rally This Monday (8/14)

U.S. Sen. Edward Markey joins MBTA mechanics at an anti-privatization rally and press conference this Monday (8/14) to support public transit workers who worry Gov. Charlie Baker could privatize their jobs. The event starts at 11:45 a.m. at MBTA Lynn Maintenance Facility (985 Western Ave., Lynn, MA).

The event is organized by INVEST NOW, a coalition of public transit supporters, including riders, workers, community groups, nonprofits, businesses, municipalities and elected leaders hoping to drum up support for investment in the 120-year old public transit agency.

The organization said Monday’s rally comes “on the heels of the for-profit companies sneaking into the MBTA garages under the cloak of night between midnight and 3:00 A.M. earlier this week to survey the properties they will be bidding for control of.”

    well senator ED and senator LIZ are not gonna help us … never did in the past when they had the power . also remember that Governor Patrick all failed to keep the MBTA running / and maintained… IMO..

    when they had power they destroyed our Caddy Lack health insurance .then the winter with a MBTA director with a doctors degree in political science .., LOL yes that is what the MBTA needed someone with that type education ..The winter of snow that never ended !!!


    since these senators are too old they should be replaced with new younger pols that do have a good work history and successful in the private sector .
    it is a waste of time to support these pols..
