Governor - Why are you refusing to address the rampant fraud within the EBT program? As a Commonwealth desperate to balance a budget, explore revenue options other than continually tax us, it seems this would be an excellent place to start. No? It's my belief you are choosing to ignore this fraud as a means to gain continuous minority support. Please stop with your personal goals of national recognition, and start focusing on fixing this broken EBT system. G'day.

Governor - Would it be possible to initiate a 'plaque' system here in Charlestown such as they have in other towns. This regards resident parking - each household would get a couple of plaques to give visitors to place in their car to avoid tickets. Thank you -

mary jo: good idea but that is a local (i.e. menino), not a state issue

Governor, you refuse to address the real problem - our health. Prohibit dog fouling in public!
