Delahunt won’t take earmark money

Funds were linked to Hull energy project

The Quincy Democrat made the surprise announcement Thursday night, when he told Hull officials and members of the town-run Hull Municipal Light Plant that he would do the work he received under a no-bid contract on a pro bono basis.
