Mary Keefe DAMD Auto Body complaints toxic fumes Piedmont residents

WORCESTER — Neighbors near Larch and Piedmont streets have been complaining about toxic fumes emitted by a local auto body shop when painting car bodies for more than three years. 

A group of people, including Rep. Mary Keefe, D-Worcester, community groups and residents, gathered at Larch and Piedmont streets early Thursday evening to continue fighting for DAMD Auto Body on Piedmont Street to relocate to a nonresidential area. 

“Nothing personal, just hope they could move somewhere else and continue to thrive,” said Patricia Kirkpatrick of Mothers Out Front, a climate advocacy group.

The protesthas started since May this year and will continue hosting gatherings every Thursday.
