Once again we have been duped, denied and decline. Tonight’s Roxbury Master Plan Oversight committee was a shame and a disgrace. You have a room or community residents, activists, advocates as well as elected officials who are fighting for affordable housing, Good Job Standards and stopping the displacement that is going on in Roxbury and all over Boston participate in a supposedly community meeting. The Roxbury Oversight committee is a joke. They heard testimony after testimony of community residents asking the committee to wait for 6 months to vote and they ignored us and vote anyway. It was very disappointing to see the committee that is supposed to be a voice for the community go against the community.
It is time for a change in some of the members of the oversight committee. We need new and younger representation. This process is flawed and our community is being sold out to developers and the rich. If we do not see that, then we are blind.
Community when will we stand up for our rights, our homes, our jobs and our children. I am so sad by this whole process.
Thank you City Councilor Kim Janey, State Rep Chynah Tyler and Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz for standing up for your constituents.
