Dear Eleanore Turnkington
I have a comment about what SB.Wenham Street wrote about the trucks on Meloy Road. For several years I meant to write you, so here it is. Living on Canon Street I have to tolerate landscaper vehicles, city buses, extra school buses and all of the traffic that use this street for a short cut to Route 34 etc., vehicles playing very loud music and noisy exhaust. These are my favorite gripes:
Several years ago, when the buses would leave from the stop sign by my house, they would leave a cloud of smoke which at times would enter my house. The old buses have been replaced and no more air pollution.
My neighbors at the time, had a meeting with a Department of Transportation (DOT) representative to try to get the buses back on Orange Avenue where they came from. They are still here and more than ever.
Around that time, I spoke to Lou Esposito, (Mayor Nancy Rossi’s Office)about the trucks and his reply was we can’t stop trucks from using this street and walked away.
I brought this up at a council meeting and my councilman was going to look into it. I think he got sick and that is why nothing was addressed.
I have since spoken to my councilwoman Robin Watt Hamilton and our Mayor Nancy Rossi. The mayor said we don’t have enough police to take care of this problem. So, it continues to grow. Would you vote for them? You are doing a great job and I appreciate it.

Dear Carl K Canton Street:
I have forwarded information from your letter to your Council Woman, Robin Watt Hamilton and have asked her to seek a solution to your problem. It is very important that you notify me of any or no changes occurring on your street. Meanwhile, any communications I have with Council Woman Hamilton will be shared with my readers.
Dear Eleanore Turkington:
As much as I appreciate the enthusiasm that summer brings and that people are energized to start exercising on the boardwalk near West Walk, I just want to ask that they are walking and talking loudly in a residential area where the residents of West Walk like to keep their windows open and the sound carries near the water. So could people be respectful and speak quietly during their morning walks.
