Shrewsbury library vote is for debt exclusion, not override

To the Editor: The appearance of "Vote No on Proposition 2 ? Override" and similar signs throughout Shrewsbury are based either on a misunderstanding of Massachusetts Tax Law at best or disingenuousness at the worst. The signs are intended to refer to, and defeat, a Library Renovation Debt Exclusion question that will come before Shrewsbury voters on November 5th should a Special Town Meeting approve it on October 21st.

Corridor Nine Chamber speaks out against 6.25 percent software and IT tax

To the Editor: The Corridor Nine Board of Directors has taken a strong position in opposition to the 6.25 percent software and IT tax included in the recent transportation bill enacted July 31, 2013. At this critical time when MA is trying to expand its technology industry and attract new IT business to the Commonwealth, this IT tax discourages new business development as well as existing IT business expansion. Corridor Nine Chamber has been advocating its opposition to the IT tax since the beginning of April, contacting all of the State Senators and Representatives to vote against this tax, the first "services" tax ever enacted in the state.
