Description

This letter to Mayor White describes why the author, a South Boston mother, does not want her children to be bused to the McCormack Middle School on Columbia Point. The mother implores the mayor to read the police blotter from Columbia Point so as to understand why she believes she cannot send her children to school there. Though she has lived in South Boston for twenty years, she is becoming afraid for her neighborhood.
