Amore Slams Legislative Leadership over Tax Cut Delays

WINCHESTER – Anthony Amore, candidate for Massachusetts Auditor, issued the following statement about legislative leadership again bucking Governor Baker’s calls for tax relief.

“Actions speak louder than words, and all I’m hearing about tax relief from the House and the Senate is more empty promises,” said Amore. “Beacon Hill needs more elected leaders watching out for tax-paying families. As an independent State Auditor not beholden to one-party rule, I will make sure our tax money is being used wisely and will push to return unused funds back into the pocketbooks of our residents. Massachusetts voters want checks and balances to win the day, and I plan to carry on Governor Baker’s legacy of bipartisanship if elected.”

Background:

  • On Monday, House Speaker Ron Mariano and Senate President Karen Spilka abruptly canceled a planned meeting with Governor Baker following his push to provide tax relief for seniors. (Boston Herald, 6/27/22)
  • Senate President Spilka promised to “pursue a tax relief package for residents before the end of the session.” The session traditionally ends at the end of June. (WBSM, 5/6/22)
