The Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce welcomed Congressman Seth Moulton to Lynn on Wednesday morning at A Land of a Thousand Hills coffee shop. Moulton was on hand to answer questions in a Q&A format.
Moulton’s chief concern for Lynn and the North Shore was transportation. He see’s connecting the north rail lines to the south, North Station to South Station, as a key link needed to revitalize Lynn.
Moulton also wants to increase the number of trains to and from Lynn on a daily basis to Boston and extend the Blue Line to Lynn. “That’s the vision, to be able to take a train to Logan.”
“Lynn is the same distance from downtown (Boston) as Brooklyn is from Manhattan,” said Moulton. “Lynn has the fundamentals.”
“People who can’t afford the $1.5 million starter condo in Boston could commute from Lynn to work,” said Moulton.
