From the New Bedford Standard Times, September 25, 2008, Group Rallies Against Ballot Question 1
More than 30 community activists, public employees and other citizens took turns giving 60-second sound bites on how elimination of the income tax would affect them or their organizations.
Note the words: COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS, PUBLIC EMPLOYEES
True story: I remember when Dartmouth’s (MA) police chief retired. He received a very healthy retirement package. The town hired another police chief. He retired less than FIVE YEARS LATER with a very healthy retirement package. I need to work at least 20 years in my current job to receive my retirement package.
Don’t let public employees scare you with NO POLICE! NO FIREMEN! NO ROADS! Question 1 is about ending ABUSES. Simply put.
Vote YES on Question 1.
