To the Editor:

Bravo on Mayor Matthew Moench's response to the aggressive legal strategy and actions of the COE developer, Advance Realty. I believe that your suggestion of further R&D and pharmaceutical manufacturing would be ideal for this site and consistent with its historical use. It is clear from our current crisis that we can no longer depend on China or other foreign countries for our health and survival.
 
Advance Realty in its development of the COE insists on pursuing an adversarial strategy and a contentious relationship with the people of Bridgewater. Advance is hiding under the veil of the coronavirus pandemic to pursue profits over people. It is time for Advance Realty and its owners, the Cocoziello family, to partner with the people of Bridgewater and develop something from which we can all benefit. 
 
Sincerely,
 
John Kulak
 
Bridgewater
