Keep Newburyport as it is

Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

Hopefully, the citizens of Newburyport will be given a transparent presentation of the NRA plans for the waterfront development. Most citizens want Newburyport to remain Newburyport, not become a Nantucket. Hence:

On the Waterfront

There once was a guy from Nantucket

Who came to the Port to reconstruct it

Blocking the Waterfront view

That belongs to me and you

Now our citizens are stuck in the muck of it

Clearly, the history of this fine city has been connected to an open waterfront. It is our obligation to preserve this history and to maintain the ambiance for all in the future.
