Submitted by the Committee to Elect Jon Fetherston:
Jon A. Fetherston has won the endorsement of Citizens For Limited Taxation’s 2½ Political Action Committee, in his election bid for state representative from the 7th Middlesex District.
Editor's Note: The district represents Ashland and 6 of Framingham's 18 precincts.
CLT’S 2 ½ PAC, the political arm of Citizens for Limited Taxation, was originally
created to support candidates who would defend Proposition 2 ½ in the State Legislature. It now endorses candidates who support taxpayers on a variety of issues, and uses the CLT Legislative rating to identify pro-taxpayer legislators.
Francis J. Faulkner, executive director of the PAC, said the group endorsed Fetherston based on his strong support for tax limitation.
“We need to put people like Jon Fetherston in the state legislature to continue the fight for the income tax rollback and to block any attempt to impose new taxes. Jon has also taken the taxpayer protection pledge. This pledge asks candidates to ‘oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.’ A candidate who signs the pledge is sending a message to legislative leaders that he is serious about not raising taxes and will focus instead on better
management of state revenues.”
In contrast, his opponent Rep. Sannicandro, received a lowly 21% on CLT’s most recent taxpayer rating.
In serving the best interests of the taxpayers and the economy, we urge the voters of the 7th Middlesex District to vote for Jon A. Fetherston on Nov. 6.
