Re: “Brad Miller withdraws support for NBAF in Butner

North Carolina's U.S. Rep.Mr. Miller is an individual to be admired and most definately re-elected. His decision to withdraw support for the NBAF in Butner because of concern for his community and response to his constituants requests, is the sort of political support lacking in Boston, MA.

We ( a concerned group of residents ) have been fighting the establishment of Boston University's Level 4 Bio Lab for the past 6 years. Although the physical building exists but has not been in operation as of yet we still continue to urge our political Representives, Senators, Mayor, and City Councilors to prevent the existence of a level 4 laboratory in our neighborhood. We have not been successful. It appears that B.U. has all the financial backing and promises of profits to cover their goal.

B.U. has failed to meet many of the requirements of NIH yet they were fully funded. Our politicians have too much at stake finacially in the redevelopment of the neighborhood which is an empowerment zone, yet it has been ceded by the BRA to for-profit developers tax-free, cheap costs and very little return to the nieghborhoods. B.U. never seriously considered an alternative site because it's a perfect location for their students.

It truly is a shame we can't clone humans (I hope not.) Rep. Miller this article instills in me hope that perhaps our Reps might reconsider their point of view and withdraw their support for the Boston University Level 4 lab.
