“I feel sad people think about their own pocket before the greater good,” she said. “They can’t see the big picture.”
(But—it’s for THE CHILDREN!!!)
But the ‘vote no’ side said residents had no appetite for a tax increase that would have permanently cost the owner of an average-price home in the city $187 per year.
“I think (the override defeat) is very fair for the people who truly can’t afford this,” said Hames, who has two children at Centerville Elementary School. “I can’t call for a 2 1/2 override to my mortgage company. We have to meet our obligations, and I want our government to meet theirs.”
That is heart-breaking! You know, I didn't see anyone collecting signatures for him in Southie. Signature collectors are usually outide the Stop & Shop or the Rite-Aid (formerly Brooks, formerly Osco) on Broadway, and I'm up that way every Saturday morning . . .
You’ve got to be kidding me.
