BOSTON — A man is asking for an apology from Marilyn Petitto Devaney, the longtime District 3 governor’s councilor, after he said she blocked access to the handicapped parking spaces in front of Mass Eye and Ear last Tuesday.
“In order for my wheelchair bound 92-year-old mother to get by, I had to get her out of her chair and very carefully inch her way through the gap between your car and a barrier. How ignorant and self-important can you be?” wrote the man in an email.
District 3 is comprised of 32 towns, including parts of Boston, all of Brookline, Newton, Waltham and Concord. Devaney has held office since January 7, 1999.
The man was able to identify the vehicle as Devaney’s because it had a vanity plate that says “governor’s council 3.”
He said he was unable to take a picture of Devaney’s illegally parked vehicle because his phone was dead.
Devaney has not yet responded to News Link Live’s request for comment.
