Ten Taxpayer Group Announces Lawsuit Against Boston Children’s Hospital, DPH
For Immediate Release
April 14, 2016
Contact: Jim McManus
A Ten Taxpayer Group intervening in the Department of Public Health’s (DPH) process to determine the need for a more than $1 billion expansion at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) will announce the filing of a lawsuit against the hospital, alleging that BCH has violated state law and regulation by proceeding with construction of and fundraising for the 12-story facility without obtaining necessary state approval. The suit names DPH as a necessary party to the suit, and calls on the state to halt all construction activity until the project – the most expensive in state history – receives all official approvals.

Details to follow.
Excuse me, but who or what is a “Ten Taxpayer Group”? Is it really “Ten Taxpayers Group” or “Ten-Taxpayer Group,” comprised of ten and only ten taxpayers? Or is it really “Ten Taxpayer Groups,” meaning some sort of consortium or alliance among different groups? Or is it some oh-so-clever name that has to be explained?
Inquiring minds really don’t want to know more on this one–we just find these cutesy names seem to be intended to make the audience (that’s you and me) feel as if they are out of the loop.
