(Boston, MA)--January 16, 2013--The Campaign for Our Communities today announced its strong support for Governor Deval Patrick's call for new revenue to invest in education, transportation and economic development. The Governor's plan would raise $1.9 billion through an increase in the income tax to 6.25% and the lowering of the sales tax to 4.5%.
"We strongly support Governor Patrick's commitment to increase investments in excellent schools, reliable transportation systems and a strong economy that provides good jobs. These investments are needed to ensure that Massachusetts continues to be a great place to live, work and raise a family," stated Andi Mullin, Director of the Campaign for Our Communities.
The Campaign for Our Communities was formed to improve the quality of life for Massachusetts families and to help build a strong future for our state. The coalition, which includes over 120 organizations (http://ourcommunities.org/endorsers-list.html), believes in the need to make smart investments in people and communities. To fund those investments, it supports tax reforms that will raise new revenues while holding down increases for low and middle income families.
