This correspondence includes a letter sent to Congressman Moakley from a resident of Boston’s Roslindale neighborhood, as well as Moakley’s response. Accompanying the letter is a copy of an informational mailing that Moakley sent out to his constituents to outline his position on several issues, including fuel prices and jobs.

In a one-and-a-half page reply, Moakley assures the constituent that he is working hard to end forced busing and outlines the legislation that he has “developed and filed” in Congress.
