Mental illness

Residents of traffic-congested town are opposed to commuter rail, claiming it will lead to more traffic.

Quote:
Middleboro resident Tracie Craig-McGee called on selectmen and state legislators to stand up to the governor and go to DOT with a message to stop the Middleboro station.

“This town is overrun with traffic as it is. We can’t take any more,” she said. “Live our lives, drive on our roads, and you’ll find out.”
