Five challengers throw hat into General Assembly ring

June 26, 2012

WOONSOCKET — As the declaration period winds down today, five challengers have surfaced to run against incumbent lawmakers, with most targeting House members involved in the controversial sinking of the supplemental tax bill two weeks ago.
Stuart Gitlow, a psychiatrist from the North End, Michael Morin, a Woonsocket firefighter, and Michael Moniz, have all taken out papers to run against incumbent State Rep. Lisa Baldelli Hunt (D-Dist. 49).

Oh yeah, run on a platform that the 13% tax increase should have happened? That tax increase didn't even promise an end to the problem but merely an expensive temporary bandage.

I have admiration for State Rep Lisa Baldelli for stepping up and stating what was really on the table, a tax increase that was going to help cripple the city's ability to solve its problems. KInd of like giving money to a street person to buy alcohol.

While listening to the radio program airing the meeting in City Hall last night (Monday), I heard possible items yet be trimmed off the budget like longevity pay increases for city employess after being such for five years. Small item but all those longevity benefits totaled more than $1.2 million. That leaves only $5.8 million more to trim.

Anybody running on a tax increase platform should be sent a message by not voting for them. To vote in their direction would be business as usual. No way!!!

I agree. I wouldn't want to see anyone win who is running on a tax increase platform either. Do you know if any of the candidates are running on such a platform?
