Upsurge in Organized Fight Against BU Biolab!



Interview with Representative Gloria Fox:

HJB: Representative Fox, could you say a few words about the proposed BU Biolab?

Representative Gloria Fox, Roxbury: Historically, I have challenged the validity of having a Level 4 Biolab in the heart of the community. The issue of public safety is paramount. I have just introduced additional legislation (H.1945) demanding that the Department of Public Health address the legitimate concerns of the community point by point.

RoxComp Questions Persist - Demand Justice

The last public meeting on the fate of the Roxbury Comprehensive Community Health Center took place on-site there on October 29th. Besides a presentation by the leading contender for the property, Bridge Boston Charter School, many former workers came to bring forward their just demands for back pay. Nothing could or would be done about that until the sale went through, and then they were in line with other creditors.

Health Care, or Lack Thereof

Shrinking Access to Needed Services

Thank you for coming to Braintree and the South Shore to listen to our many burning issues. Here's my thinking on steps needed to reform our essentially dysfunctional healthcare system in Massachusetts, highlighting six pieces of legislation already filed and awaiting bill numbers, and indicating additional areas in need of attention.

The recent closing of Quincy Medical Center by Steward Health Care, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cerberus Capital Management, throws the cracks in our system into stark relief.
