~ Letter-to-the-Editor ~
Opponents of Rail Trail call Rec.
Commission endorsement dishonest
Dear Editor,
I would like to take this op-
portunity to congratulate the
Wakefield toLynnfieldProTrail
group for finally gettinganen-
dorsement fromthe Lynnfield
Recreation Commission, even
if they did it dishonestly, and
resorted to manipulation. Af-
ter all, an endorsement is an
endorsement isn’t it? Howev-
er, only three members of the
seven eligible to vote actual-
ly voted in favor of the trail. In-
deed, isn’t persistence an ad-
mirable quality? Well yes, but
not when it becomes a nui-
sance and borders on harass-
ment.
When persistence deterio-
rates into desperation it be-
comes pathetic, and when re-
fusing toaccept a“no”forwhat
it is, further persistence be-
comes coercion.
Back in January, the proTrail
group attempted to get an
endorsement from the Rec-
reation Commission, why?
– well, just because – that’s
why; as they felt they were
entitled to it. Unfortunately,
they didn’t really have any rea-
sons as to why the Recreation
Commission should endorse
their scheme. So, they retyped
their FAQs, put a logo on the
top and returned in February.
Now, the thing about these
particular frequently asked
questions is that they are not
being asked by anyone, and
they certainly aren’t support-
ed by“facts.”Unless of course,
you like facts of the alterna-
tive kind.When theRecreation
Commission asked questions
about such basic things as
how many people would ac-
tually use the Trail they had
no answers. When Citizens
of Lynnfield against the Rail
Trail asked questions about
costs, maintenance, conges-
tion, safety and the environ-
ment, the pro Trail group had
no answers. And when the
Recreation Commission vot-
ed tonot endorse the RailTrail,
thepro-trailers becamebellig-
erent and started telling the
Recreation Commission that
it was “their job” to endorse
the Trail. Yes, in February the
RecreationCommission voted
to not endorse the Rail Trail. 3
members voted in favor of the
Trail, 1 votedagainst, and2 ab-
stained as they felt they need-
ed more time to consider the
new information they had just
been presented with.
Fast forward to March 7th,
and the pro-trailers and their
new legal representation re-
turned to theRecreationCom-
mission. This time they had a
new trick, “no”actually means
“yes.” As it turns out, appar-
ently, under Roberts Rules
for Public Meetings, the two
Rec members who abstained,
because they wanted more
time to understand the com-
plexities of the issue, weren’t
counted in the original vote.
So, the vote to endorse the
Trail, by a seven person board,
actually passedby 3members
voting for the proposal and 1
voting against it. With their
“endorsement” finally in their
hands the pro-trailers scuttled
out of the meeting. Had they
stayed theywould have heard
further discussion of the Trail
and howmembers of the Rec-
reation Commission felt that
they had been manipulated,
and that “this isn’t how we do
things on this committee, and
this leaves a bad taste in the
mouth.” But they didn’t stay;
they were probably too busy
plotting which Town Body to
harass next.
Ethics, honestyand transpar-
ency are not in the DNA of the
pro-trailers, they are too ob-
sessed with their agenda of
pushing the Trail through re-
gardless.That theycarenotone
little bit about the abutters is
of no surprise, however their
scant disregard for the truth is
a surprise in a group that pur-
ports to have the best inter-
ests of our “community spirit”
(
Lynnfield Advocate
03/10/17)
at heart: they don’t, they are
only interested in themselves.
So, when theyask for your vote
for the Trail in April, and that is
what youarevotingon, not just
a lease on a railroad, please re-
member the depths they were
prepared to plumb to get the
endorsementof theRecreation
Commission. So, pro-trailers –
congratulations on your “en-
dorsement” – you should feel
really proud of yourselves.
Yours,
Philip McQueen
Citizens of Lynnfield Against
the Rail Trail
