Massachusetts Public Office Holders and Candidates Should Sign 'Taxpayer Protection Pledge'

Beaty believes that all federal, state, county & municipal public office incumbents and candidates in Massachusetts should sign the Citizens for Limited Taxation, “Taxpayer Protection Pledge.”

For social justice reasons, and simply as one of the tens of thousands of registered voters and citizens of this Commonwealth, I am writing to openly, respectfully and impartially call upon Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray, House Speaker Robert DeLeo, State Senator Dan Wolf, as well as all federal, state, county and municipal public office incumbents and candidates in Massachusetts to sign the Citizens for Limited Taxation, “Taxpayer Protection Pledge.”

Bearing in mind the ongoing tough economic times that we all face, the aforementioned pledge provides a measure of good faith by said office holders and candidates to the taxpayers and constituents of their respective geographical areas and to all people within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Furthermore, it clearly indicates that they shall oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes during their tenure in office, if elected.

Cape Codders, along with the other citizens of this state, need to be reassured that their interests are going to be looked after and protected by the individuals they vote into public office. They do not need to have any further economic burdens thrust upon them in the form of increased taxes of whatever type for at least the next several years at a minimum.

As much as I agree with what Mr. Beaty says here, it will simply just not happen with the current administraton that is in power.
