Former state Rep. Kevin Fitzgerald’s death is not only a loss to his family and friends, but also to the Arborway Committee. We thank him for his longtime support of Green Line service to Jamaica Plain. Growing up in Jamaica Plain, he knew the value of streetcar service. For instance, in 2000, his leadership kept the MBTA from cutting E Line service to Heath Street. He wanted friends, neighbors and supporters in the Mission Hill community to have access to the best transit available. On a personal note, Kevin was always gracious and honorable in his dealings with me and with others in the community. We extend our sympathy to his family and many friends.
