"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
This weeks (week of April 13, 2014) Beacon Hill Roll Call provides ample reason for us to demand change on Beacon Hill in November.
First Speaker DeLeo pushed through a bill that would prevent any amendments to the state budget that bars amendments on local aid and welfare. Them all of local Democrat members of the House followed lock step with the speaker in voting on four common sense bills that would (1) Make it harder to ship budget amendments off to study committees where they will never again see the light of day. (2) Allow debate on local aid (3) Allow debate on welfare and EBT cards and (4) allow more time to file budget amendments.
Please note Representatives Rosa, Benson, DiNatale, Zlotnick and Naughton all voted in lock step with the speaker. At least three of these representatives will try to present themselves as moderate fiscal conservatives that believe in transparency in government. Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing.
When you vote in November, remember their votes and show your support for statewide and local candidates that will bring a change to Beacon Hill.
If you are interested in running against the representatives that are unopposed., there is still time to get enough signatures to get on the ballot. However, time is short
