City joins outcry against MBTA cuts
Emotions, voices run high at hearing
A Somerville hearing on proposed MBTA fare hikes and service cuts swung from raucous to heartfelt and back Tuesday night, drawing both political theatrics and searching pleas from Somerville’s most vulnerable residents. Among a crowd of more than 200, testimony from senior citizens, teenagers, and the disabled seemed the most resonant with T general manager Jonathan Davis. ”We don’t like this any more than the people in this room,” Davis said, responding after a string of impassioned testimonials.
