For the back story read this KingCast black history post about two white men I admire -- Gloucester fire victim Robert Taylor and Franconia Selectman candidate Jeffery Jesseman. Here's Mr. Jesseman's website.
Here's the Gloucester Times 5 Feb. 2008 editorial in support of the bill first drafted by Crnilovic-Phillips law offices.
But there's also a chance that Taylor's legacy will extend far beyond the Gloucester area, his extended family and his circle of friends — if local and state lawmakers cooperate, and they should.But first noted by the paper on 1 Feb. 2008.
Proposed legislation is being pushed by the Lawrence-based law firm of Crnilovic & Phillips, who have also brought the first lawsuit on behalf of a tenant who said she was never notified that her apartment had not undergone proper safety inspections for several years.
"The residents of the Lorraine were apparently never notified of their building's hazards. But they — and other residents of such buildings around the state — would have that right if this new proposal were to become law.We have good support for the bill as shall be noted in Due Course.
Now that would be a fitting legacy for Mr. Taylor."
