LYNCH WINS TAXPAYERS’ ENDORSEMENT

Kathleen Lynch has won the endorsement of CLT’s 2 ½ Political Action Committee in her election bid for State Representative from the 2nd Middlesex District.

IMG_1766.jpgCLT’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 Lynch based on her strong support for tax limitation.  “We need to put people like Kathy Lynch in the State Legislature to continue the fight for the income tax rollback and to block any attempt to impose new taxes.  In contrast her opponent, Rep. James Arciero, received a lowly zero on Citizens for Limited Taxation’s most recent taxpayer rating.  We are fearful that Rep. Arciero would vote for higher taxes given his record. Kathleen Lynch however, has 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 she is serious about not raising taxes and will focus instead on better management of state revenues.”

Faulkner continued, “In serving the best interests of the taxpayers and the economy, we urge the voters of the 2nd Middlesex District to vote for Kathleen Lynch on November 6th.”
