South Shore reporter Beverly Ware, staff writer for the Chronicle Herald, wrote an article about this building in Lunenburg.
Which prompted me to write:
As a former Lunenburg homeowner and proud wheelchair user, I fear your article , Ramp dispute may cost volunteers will cause the real cost of this dispute to come to rest at the wheels of disabled Nova Scotians, who get nary a mention from you. A couple of things come to mind:
- In Milton Mass, where he lives, Mr. Scott Sherman
Scott R. Sherman II
- It doesn't take long to uncover another side of Mr. Sherman. Lunenburgers will remember his efforts to bring lap dancing into the Post Office (and not just to sell stamps). I leave it to you to decide if smoke indicates fire. He lives in this modest bungalow,
333 Brush Hill Rd., Milton MA
- The building needs a ramp. Ms. Lamerson seems very nice, but no disabled person can shop at her store and no disabled person can volunteer or be employed there. No one ever seems to consider the discrimination inherent in lack of accessibility. Ms. Lamerson's good works do not exempt her from the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The building inspector is doing her job and enforcing the law. Good for her.
Sherman's a guy who won't do for Nova Scotians what he is required by law to do at home. Let's be clear about who gets harmed if there's no ramp.
