I was on the city council when the debate came up over taxes for The Berkshire Power plant. I led the way for a defeat of the tax deal that had been worked out for Berkshire power and initiated a fair tax structure based on the value of investment in the project. "We must have a tax base which can pay for our goods and services. I have been in business for myself since I graduated from Boston University. I understand the difficulties of running a business but you cannot give away your taxes. The council was able to restrict the tax structure and we have been able to receive many millions more in tax revenue."
