Investing in our Future: Solar Energy and Massachusetts

In 2008, Governor Patrick rolled out a new set of initiatives under the “Green Energy Plan” aimed to help establish Massachusetts as one of the leading states in investing in alternative, renewable energy. After reading through his energy goals and proposals, I took it upon myself to use the resources I had at my disposal, as Chief Assessor for the City of Attleboro, to try to come up with a similar type of program nearby. One of my main goals was to make sure we could construct this plant with no expense to the taxpayers.

I wholeheartedly agree with the Governor’s Green Energy Initiative and believe that alternative energy is a sound investment and the future of not only Massachusetts, but the United States as well.

Stanley Nacewicz Unveils Senior Tax Freeze Program

Stan Nacewicz

State Representative Candidate, Stanley Nacewicz, proposed a new initiative that would essentially freeze property taxes for Senior Citizens who meet specific criteria.

The program, “Property Tax Freeze for Seniors”, would halt property tax hikes for Senior Citizens who meet both of the following criteria:

  1. He or she must be of the age 65 and over and
  2. Must have 15 years residency in the town for which they apply

“More and more people these days, particularly our Senior Citizens, are getting the boot because of unfair property tax hikes,” Nacewicz says. “As Chief Tax Assessor for the City of Attleboro, I’m constantly hearing stories of whole families being forced to move out-of-state or with loved ones because they can’t afford property taxes.”

Dan Winslow

State Representative candidate Dan Winslow, the former Presiding Justice of the Wrentham District Court, today endorsed the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation’s (MTF) proposed reforms of the state’s public pension and benefit systems. “Massachusetts taxpayers are paying more and more to support public sector employees with compensation, pensions and benefits that most private sector employees do not have and never will be able to afford for themselves and their own families,” Winslow said. “We need to end this imbalance as a matter of fairness as well as a matter of fiscal prudence.”

Dan Winslow: Mending Roads, Cutting Costs Without Cutting Corners

Winslow Proposes New Idea to Cut Millions of Waste in State Roadway Spending

[ed_note]Dan Winslow has sent us another one of his many innovative legislative proposals[/ed_note]

South Street in Medfield, posted with a speed limit of 30 mph, has a design in excess of 40 mph

State Representative candidate Dan Winslow today proposed to reform the state transportation standards to eliminate millions of dollars of wasted money on state-funded road construction and instead to stretch tax dollars to allow repaving of local roads and create more construction jobs in Massachusetts communities. Existing state specifications require towns that use state roadway funds to rebuild roads that encourage faster vehicle traffic than posted speed limits. Road construction with faster design speeds, however, is more expensive than simply rebuilding roads to match existing speed limits. Winslow would require roadway design speeds to match posted speed limits, which would save millions of dollars of transportation money each year.

Dan Winslow calls for legislature to get back to work on jobs

Dan Winslow

State Representative candidate Dan Winslow today called on the Legislative leadership to reconvene the legislative session and finish work on the proposal to allow slot machines at state racetracks. Winslow’s statement came in response to news that Plainridge Racecourse today laid off 10% of its workforce, or 157 jobs, because the Democratic majority cannot agree on the best approach to gaming for the state.

“The Legislature plans to take the next five months off from formal sessions,” said Winslow, “but so much work remains to be done. The Legislature should return from its summer vacation to finish work on the gaming legislation to save jobs. Jobs are Job One in this economy and we need legislators willing to work hard for job creation in the Commonwealth.”
