State Senate candidate Jeff Bailey (R-Attleboro) signed the Citizens for Limited Taxation "No New Taxes" pledge Tuesday. Bailey is running against incumbent Jim Timility (D-Walpole) for the Bristol and Norfolk District seat, which includes Foxborough, Mansfield, Medfield, Norton and Sharon.
“I am proud to sign this pledge," said Bailey in a press release. "It shows my commitment to the taxpayer of this district. I strongly believe that people should be able to keep more of their hard earned paychecks. People know how best to spend their money not government.
“When the legislature passed the sales tax increase, it further damaged the Commonwealth’s economy," added Bailey. "It drove many consumers out of state. You don’t increase taxes during a recession.”
