Read Pioneer's Annual Review of the Governor’s Budget Proposal:
As the Governor treks across the state promoting his budget plan, read Pioneer's take! Excerpt: "The budget outline’s highlight is the governor’s suggestion to set aside all revenue from a lowered 4.5 percent sales tax to fund infrastructure. This welcome change is more than outweighed by heaping sides of tax hikes and meritless spending." We're tweeting out bits and pieces all day, help us spread the word: http://bit.ly/XsDgFC
Our own Mary Z. Connaughton will be on Fox 25 and Channel 5 TONIGHT talking about the gross mismanegment of the state's welfare system and the firing of the head of the Dept. of Transitional Assistance. We hope you'll tune in!
In case you missed it, Jim Stergios has been all over the Governor's plans for new tax hikes and transportation spending on Fox 25, NECN, RadioBoston, WRKO's The Kuhner Report, The Boston Herald, and The Boston Globe. Jim's been calling on the administration to recognize the impact on the economy of new tax hikes, and to fix the current problems plaguing the MBTA before even talking about expansion.
