    Great post, Mark.
    The Pond View waste facility in East Providence is a prime example of city and state footdragging as well as a modicum of municipal and state progressivism, due to the persistent efforts of the surrounding neighborhoods to fight back.
    If you’d like to raise your visibility in a credible way, you’d do well to contact the leaders of the anti-Pond View movement and establish a dialogue with them, if you have not done so already.
    Good luck with your political future.
