Income Tax Rollback Campaign to Haunt the Malls
on Halloween Weekend

Volunteer petitioners including Governor Paul Cellucci will be haunting Massachusetts malls on Saturday, October 30th and Sunday October 31st, looking for signatures on their initiative petition to rollback the 5.95% income tax rate to 5 percent over three years.

Citizens for Limited Taxation and the state Republican Party will be staffing tables at 12 malls from Cape Cod to Holyoke with petitioners who will be asking mall shoppers, "Taxes or Treat?" Legislative tricksters who promised in 1989 that the income tax rate increase would be temporary will be haunted by their broken promise come November 2000, when voters can have the opportunity to keep the promise for them.

The Tax Rollback petitioners need 57,100 certified signatures by December 1st. Their goal is to submit at least 100,000 "raw" signatures to the city and town halls on the November 17th deadline (Nov. 22nd in Boston only) to avoid a challenge from the goblins in the Massachusetts Teachers Association and the Tax Equity Alliance of Massachusetts.

Governor Cellucci will be at the Natick Mall at 10:00 AM on Saturday to kick off the drive's one official Mall Weekend. However, petitioners have been circulating petitions at local shopping centers, banks and town dumps and around neighborhoods since mid-September. CLT Director of Operations Chip Ford and Petition Drive Coordinator Chip Faulkner report that many petitions have been turned in, others are already at the city/town halls, and many are still being circulated by individual petitioners. "The Mall Weekend is a big part of our overall effort," said Ford, "and we are looking for thousands of shoppers to stop by our tables and sign the petition."
