Weiss Farm Project Issue

The Weiss Farm project has created a ground swell of interest in protecting our community from the inherent flaws in this project.

This has been and continues to be a significant factor in uniting an extraordinarily diverse group of people.

Many have voiced their opinions clearly and with great integrity and honesty. We have listened to each other and learned from each other.

We should congratulate ourselves for the progress made in exposing the clearly ill-conceived Weiss Farm project. We should also congratulate ourselves on creating a potential platform for exploring other issues of concern to the people of Stoneham.

Unfortunately, with this success comes the associated risk that inflated egos and political agendas engender.

Of late there has been an undercurrent of thought that goes beyond the stated safety, health and economic concerns of a working class community. It is a deeply disturbing trend.

This increasingly prominent undercurrent has no place in the effort to stop the Weiss Farm project. It is time to look in the mirror and assess our responsibility as individuals in fostering this behavior.

To maintain our integrity we must put a stop to this impediment to our progress.

More on the subject of megalomania to come.

Could the writer of this article please be a tad more specific. If threats were made, that would certainly be of great concern but justified anger and opposition is not a crime.

This is a comment regarding leadership or the lack thereof. We have had few meetings, little in the way of communications and some are consumed with the thought that they actually have power as individuals. This is a group that sources its power from the people involved, not from an individual. Outrage and anger are appropriate for a number of reasons, primarily from the lack of support from many town officials. It makes one wonder what they are getting from this arrangement with the WF developers.
