Heard the CNC did it again made their own decision, didn't listen to the neighborhood again! Gave the green light to the developers to extend Jack Milerick project.

I've said it time and time again, the CNC does NOT represent Charlestown residents. They represent only those that "play the game!!"

Do not understand why they want residents to attend meetings!!! What is it? Do they just want to have an audience? They should abolish it, and the BRA also, for all the good they do for the residents. Their scorecard stinks!

Anyone ever check to see what the ties are between members of the CNC and the BRA...you know, BRA "The Real Power in Boston?"
