We are organizing a call-in day to Governor Baker in response to FERC's conditional certificate of approval. Though we realize Gov. Baker doesn't have the authority to stop the project, we need him to step up and speak out against the proposal.
Please make a call today; it should only take a few minutes of your time!
Sample Call Script to Governor Baker
Call Governor Baker's office at 617-725-4005:
Hi, my name is __________ and I would like to speak with you about the compressor station proposed for Weymouth, MA.
I’m a resident of ________ and I am concerned about the proposed Atlantic Bridge pipeline expansion that would require a compressor station to be built in Weymouth.
The compressor station, which just received a conditional federal certificate, still needs a permit from the state’s Office of Coastal Zone Management.
Governor Baker needs to show that, unlike President Trump’s reckless promotion of fossil fuel pipelines, he respects local residents’ rights, safety, and concerns about contamination of the Fore River Basin by urging the Office of Coastal Zone Management to deny its permit to the compressor station.
I want Governor Baker to make the right choice to protect the rights of local citizens from this dangerous federal decision.
Thank you for your time.
