I’ve drifted away from talking about news on this blog (the “Latest MBTA News” section of every post hasn’t had any actual content in months), but this petition is incredibly important to sign. Governor Charlie Baker has been pushing for certain parts of the MBTA to be privatized, which would be horrible for everyone. Sam Hegg (writer of Sam’s Operation Oculi) wrote up this petition, and I urge you all to sign it. He explains the negative impacts of privatization better than I could, so read the petition and then sign it to help the MBTA’s workers, riders, and Commonwealth taxpayers. Spread the word!
