Letter to the Editor: We’ve fought fake grass for two decades

Twenty years ago we, the concerned citizens of Newton, collected signatures under a petition to stop the use of artificial turf.

We presented scientific proofs of the artificial turf’s environmental, human and athletic hazards. And then the Board of Aldermen rejected our petition.

Here and now in Newton, other concerned citizens present a similar petition to Newton legislators. Again – to no avail! How long will that poison be accepted in the “safe city” of Newton? Watch the money trail.
