Every tax is a pay cut. Every tax cut is a pay raise.

|It's town's, not my job to clean up snow|
|Robert P. Bergman (Lomas Drive)||Friday, January 17, 2003|
This is in response to the TAB editorial of 1/10/03, captioned
"Lend a shovel to snow cleanup efforts".
I reject its tenor, and its imposition on the taxpayers of
Framingham. The Town of Framingham has been fiscally
mismanaged for several years. We have had, within
the last 12 years, 3 successful overrides,
and 1 (Community Preservation Act), that failed.
And, within a few months, we will face another, which,
given the unique Framingham tradition, will certainly pass.
Your most recent editorial is founded on several predicates and a faulty conclusion:
What's next, in your prescription? Should my neighbors be forced to snow-remove or pave the street, or deliver trash to the Haverhill incinerator directly? Or should those of my neighbors who live on my street who have college degrees, be forced to teach in the schools on an unpaid basis? How far does the analogy work?
