Mayor Setti Warren is betting that you will sacrifice more of your hard-earned money to fund his government’s growth by saying yes to his three override proposals in March.
Moving Newton Forward (with Fiscal Responsibility) urges you to vote no on each proposal on March 12th.
Let’s respectfully ask our Mayor and Aldermen to do what our households routinely do — choose expenses wisely. Live within our means.
We appreciate the Mayor’s recent cost trimming. We agree with him that our infrastructure has been neglected. But when we study budgets to see what departments were not neglected these past nine years, we find budget bloat that can only be addressed by changing spending priorities.
Newton has plenty of money. We document Newton’s recent spending on our Website’s page Did You Know?
Newton elected officials have plenty of talent. They are capable people.
What they need most right now, however, are voters demanding reform by denying the overrides. Only spending reform can move Newton forward sustainably for present and future generations.
