Environmentally destructive Cambridge Pol is Attorney to North Point Project

Former Cambridge Mayor / Vice Mayor , City Councilor and State Senator Anthony Galluccio was introduced at the East Cambridge meeting on November 30, 2011 concerning the North Point project as the attorney for the project.

Galluccio was Cambridge Vice Mayor and in favor for the key vote in December 1999 giving the Cambridge City Council’s $1.5 million funding for the environmental outrage at Magazine Beach.

As mayor / vice mayor / city councilor it is inconceivable that he, in any way, objected to environmental destruction at Magazine Beach or to the heartless animal abuse inflicted on the Charles River White Geese as part of this bizarre project.

As State Senator from Cambridge, it is equally inconceivable that he objected in any way to further implementation of the escalating outrages at Magazine Beach.

His current position as attorney on the North Point project puts him smack in the middle of one of the largest developments ever seen in Cambridge, MA or the Boston, MA area. The area is the former railroad yard complex associated with North Station in Boston. It is close to Bunker Hill Community College, Sullivan Square in Charlestown, Washington Street in Somerville, and to the McGrath / O’Brien Highway in Somerville / Cambridge. It abuts the Gilmore Bridge connecting Bunker Hill in Charlestown to East Cambridge / Lechmere.

The most comparable project would be the creation of the Back Bay neighborhood in Boston in the 19th Century, except, in dramatic contrast, the Back Bay was not developed by one developer and probably was smaller.

And smack dab in the middle of this is a Cambridge Pol with a Cambridge Pol’s record of environmental destruction and heartless animal abuse.

Cambridge City Councilor on Monteiro, Healy

The voters of the City of Cambridge fired the second worst city councilor environmentally after he was quoted as saying that destroying the life of Malvina Monteiro in retaliation for her filing a civil rights complaint was no big thing.

The worst member as far as environmental destruction and heartless animal abuse goes is Henrietta Davis. The same letter that quoted the soon to be former city councilor also quoted her in the same breath. The letter was published by the Cambridge Chronicle on line. Davis responded with her own letter on line. The photo attached by the Chronicle to her response looks like it was taken from the candidate forum. Neither made the Cambridge Chronicle hard copy.

English translation of the Davis comments are the usual. She abhors discrimination by anybody else and in no way gave in on her indifference to the destruction of the life of Malvina Monteiro.

Elizabeth Anne Kanze just posted a link on facebook to the Davis comments in the August 31 2011 candidate forum with the comment, ”Henrietta Davis on Retaliation Lawsuit : money more important.” The link is:

One interesting comment by her at the forum is that the jury award exceeds the possible award in response to killing somebody.

Davis totally fails to mention that $3.5 million of the $4.6 million jury award was PENAL DAMAGES intended to express the jury’s disgust at the City of Cambridge. The judge followed by referring to Cambridge’s behavior as “reprehensible” in support of the jury award. The appeals court panel showed its disgust at Cambridge’s appeal by refusing to issue a formal opinion and commenting that there was “ample evidence [of] outrageous actions.”

I am not positive, but I presume this is the forum the letter was referring to.

The letter from the former head of the Cambridge Women’s Commission, Nancy Ryan, may be read at: In addition to the Chronicle publication, she distributed these comments widely apparently as part of an email mailing. I received a copy of the email mail on a listserve.
