The Board of Selectman in Framingham view taxpayers as an unending source of wealth to fund to fund their re-election chances by catering to the public sector unions. In essence, they cater to the few (the unions) and disregard the many (the taxpayers).

The split rate between commercial and residential properties started in 1982.

While commercial properties make up 24.6 percent of the tax base in 2010, their owners will pay 43.07 percent of the tax levy .
