The Herald published a Letter to the Editor I submitted about the ongoing struggle with NSTAR regarding its Lincoln St substation.
NStar woes unplugged - Letters to the Editor - BostonHerald.com
Departing City Councilor Jerry McDermott may think he won the battle with NStar [NST], but those of who live near the NStar substation know a different reality (“Councilor builds new career, McDermott to head housing charity,” July 21).
Graffiti and litter accumulate on the Lincoln Street side of the substation. At the intersection of Mansfield and Lincoln streets, a vacant lot sits empty and unattractive. The barrier wall to protect abutting homes and other improvements that McDermott demanded from NStar are nowhere in sight.
NStar could be a better neighbor to people who have watched its substation literally explode before our very eyes.
