‘Environmental’ issues discussed during listening session in Springfield

Drinking water quality, lead paint among the issues discussed

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office wants to know what you think about energy and environmental issues. AG Maura Healy has set up a series of sessions around the state.

About 2 dozen people attended Thursday night’s “environment” listening session at the UMass Center in Springfield.

Melissa Hoffer of the Attorney General’s Energy Department told 22News, “The reason why we’re doing listening sessions are to really give us the opportunity to get around to different towns in Massachusetts and hear directly from communities and individuals about the energy and environmental issues that mean the most to them right now.”

Among the issues in question are drinking water quality, lead paint and energy costs. Hoffer said the Attorney General’s Representatives were there only to listen, and not to talk about specific tactics or strategies.

The next 2 sessions have been scheduled for Tuesday, June 27 in Roxbury and Thursday, June 29 in Lawrence.
