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..
