This is what COW is -- and isn't

(Continued)

And, yes, we are truly an “organization.” We have been registered with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a nonprofit corporation since March 23, 1989. Thus the “Inc.” in our name. And more than a few of our current members have been with us since the beginning. We have a long history, and a history of success, in the community. We meet every two weeks, sometimes more often. Obviously we are both open and above-board.

Finally, the mayor, the NRA and now Mr. Early accuse COW of spreading “misinformation and downright falsehoods” and yet to this day no one has explicitly stated just what it is that is problematic about any of our assertions. COW proudly stands by everything that it has publicly stated.

Like Mr. Early, I, too, am often around town interacting with the public, but contrary to his experience mostly what I hear is near-unanimous support for COW. Maybe what one hears is dependent upon one’s expectations? I wonder which one of us is hearing the true reflection of the community. I bet it’s me.

Elizabeth G. Heath, President

The Committee for an Open Waterfront Inc.
