The Framingham Taxpayers’ Association (“FTPA”) has endorsed Jon A. Fetherston in his election bid for state representative from the 7th Middlesex District. The district is comprised of Ashland and parts of Framingham.
The FTPA is a non-partisan group of Framingham taxpayers dedicated to cost-effective fiscally responsible government.
Enzo Rotatori, chairman of the FTPA, said the group endorsed Fetherston, because of his success in holding the line on increased taxes while serving on the Ashland Board of Selectmen and his availability to the people of Framingham and Ashland.
“Taxpayers need people like Jon Fetherston in the state legislature to protect taxpayers and fight for fiscal responsible state government. While on the Board of Selectmen, Jon Fetherston protected the taxpayer, while balancing the needs of the community," said Rotatori.
"On the other hand, Fetherston’s opponent Rep. Sannicandro, received a dismal 21% on Citizens for Limited Taxation’s most recent taxpayer rating. In addition, Sannicandro refused the invitation of the FTPA to participate in a debate sponsored by the FTPA. If the incumbent won’t talk to taxpayers during the campaign, we hold out little hope that, if he is re-elected, he will suddenly become more accessible," said Rotatori.
"The FTPA believes that Jon Fetherston will better serve the interests of the taxpayers and the economy. We urge the voters of the 7th Middlesex District to vote for Jon A. Fetherston on November 6th.”
