Massachusetts Citizens for Freedom is made up of business owners and private citizens dedicated to preserving freedom of choice and personal responsibility. Since June 1999 we have been working hard to fight the government imposed smoking bans in Dartmouth, New Bedford and Fairhaven, Massachusetts. However, we are not the only ones under attack and we cannot do it alone. It is time for all of us throughout the state to join together in this cause.
Mass Tobacco Control is using local Boards of Health throughout the state to impose regulations in each and every town. The State Department of Public Health decided August 17, 1999 not to impose regulations statewide due to the "success" of the local boards. They stated that they would re-visit the issue in one year. The handwriting is on the wall. By this coming August they will claim that so many cities and towns "voted for" smoking regulations that it may as well be statewide.
WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!
We have a good shot at beating this in New Bedford, but need your help.
We have experienced the methods used with both appointed and elected Boards Of Health. While the democratic process is virtually removed from their meetings, there are several things you can do to turn the tide.
