LAMB RECEIVES CITIZENS FOR LIMITED TAXATION'S 2 1/2 PAC ENDORSEMENT
Incumbent Receives Failing Grade for Protecting Taxpayers
Today Francis Faulkner, Associate Director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, announced that CLT's 2 ½ PAC has endorsed Marty Lamb for State Representative.
"We are pleased to place our support behind Marty Lamb. He is the candidate who can be trusted to protect the taxpayers at the State House," said Faulkner.
On the other hand incumbent State Representative Carolyn Dykema received a disappointing rating of 25% which means she votes against the taxpayers 75% of the time.
"Rep. Dykema is no friend to taxpayer. She has routinely votes to waste tax dollars and refused to lower our state's hefty tax burden," said Faulkner.
Incumbents are rated on their voting record. This year's roll call votes include the amendment to roll back the income tax back to 5%, the further amendment to kill the vote on public benefits for illegal aliens, requiring a 2/3s vote to increase taxes, implementing Secure Communities statewide, rolling back the sales tax, requiring forced unionization of home daycare centers, reforming EBT, requiring the auditor to account for state funded credit cards, requiring MBTA pensions be published online, to name a few.
Lamb signed the "No New Taxes" pledge early on in the campaign. The pledge clearly states as a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives he will oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.
"We urge voters of Holliston, Hopkinton, Southborough, and Westborough to vote for Marty Lamb for State Representative," said Faulkner.
