Public meeting on Varian cleanup, June 9

June 8th, 2022 by secretary

From Will Cosmas:
Friends,
Since November 2020, VOC (Voices of Concern) North Beverly has worked with state and municipal leaders – and the responsible company – to find a permanent solution to the contamination at the former Varian site on Sohier Road. We have urged MassDEP to compel a meaningful clean-up plan because, despite more than two decades of mitigation work, the site remains a threat to local businesses, residents, and schools. We cannot and should not have to live any longer with the threat of toxic chemicals in the soil beneath us. Media attention, hard work, and persistent, dedicated volunteer involvement has begun to help us gain traction. What we need right now is the involvement of our entire community to get us over the finish line. Please join us tomorrow (6/9) at Shore Country Day School from 7-9PM for an update from Varian about the state of the clean-up and next steps. Your presence and engagement will confirm to all involved that this urgent matter needs an urgent and permanent solution that will make our community safer for all.
Thanks,Will

Welcome & Thanks!

May 3rd, 2022 by secretary

Welcome, Keith Sonia, New Chair

We would like to announce that we have a new City Chair, effective April 12, 2022. His name is Keith Sonia, and he has quite a lot of experience in political campaigns.

Keith served as Eileen Duff’s first Campaign Manager in 2012, before working to re-elect then-Governor of New Hampshire, Maggie Hassan. He has worked for Congresswoman Annie Kuster, former Congressman Joe Kennedy, and the New Hampshire Democratic Party. He graduated from UMASS Boston in 2011, King’s College, London in 2014, and has passed his oral doctoral defense at Goldsmiths, University of London. He grew up in Lynn and now happily lives on Broadway in Beverly.

Congratulations and welcome to Keith, we all look forward to working with you!

Much Gratitude To Our Former Chair

We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to Jim Thompson, who did a great job at the helm of the BDCC for the last four years. He was always willing to listen to our opinions, made wise decisions, had a good sense of humor and was very pleasant to work with. We’re very glad he’s staying on as a valuable member of the Committee!

Jim posted the following announcement on our FB page:

“That’s a wrap! After four years, I decided not to run for re-election as chair of the Beverly Democratic City Committee. The BDCC is filled with hard-working people who are passionate about working for the party. It was an honor to work with everyone.

“Congratulations to Keith Sonia, the new Chair! I’m excited for the next chapter for the BDCC, Keith, and myself.”
