After it was reported that an office building in the Fort Point neighborhood of South Boston is being considered for a temporary migrant shelter, the elected officials are calling for a meeting.  You can read more about this here.

See letter below!

Congressman Stephen F. Lynch, Senator Nick Collins, Representative David Biele, and Councilor Ed Flynn announced that they will be hosting a community meeting to discuss the proposal to convert an office building in Fort Point into a temporary shelter for migrant families. Unitarian Universalist Association announced that they have been in discussion with the State and City about leasing their office building to be used as a shortterm housing facility.

“Given the questions our offices have received about this proposed shelter, we believe it is best to have a community meeting with the appropriate authorities to have them answered,” said the elected officials. “The community deserves all the information available and the opportunity to provide input on the process.”

Details are being worked out with local civic groups and will be announced in the coming days.

    Would anyone be interested in forming a welcome committee for these folks?

    …by now, this is no longer a ”proposal”. All of you go-along-to-get-along local “electeds” remember this in a couple of weeks when you invite Maura the Horror and Madam Wutin to your annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast/“White Problems” Roast.
    Just make sure you save a few tables for your new neighbors/potential votes.
    Great job, everyone. Great job.
