You know damn well M. Coakley isn't going to do jack. Going to make a big fuss, then her case will be on hush like everything else she does.

Well unfortunately she is the only part of our state government that can do anything, without an amendment being passed anyway, and we know that could take years. If u got any better ideas offer em up

I don't, I do agree with you just feel helpless with this state. Everything goes up. My property taxes are jumping 3% this year yet we are the poorest city around us. I'm signing your petition going to hope she will do something.

Thanks,

And I hear you, this is quickly becoming one of the most expensive state in the us to live, and highly regulated and small business unfriendly.

My property tax jumped 1000 last year because the meat heads all voted for a new regional school be built, I don't think most of em had any idea how much taxes were being increased

Yes , on Forge Village rd. Ran out of places to park trucks and equitment. At the time the wife was selling realestate and asked " what about Amherst" I said too far . She said it was south of 101A so I said I would take a look. 1000 ft driveway , parking for 6 Trucks. Knew I would buy the place before I even stepped inside.

I like it because one can get more house for the money. I also bought at the very bottom of the market so that helped too. Drive is not bad ( 1/2 hr) except for when I have an evening estimate.
Got an 1850 sq ft house on 6.3 acres for $197k. Wasn't going to do that in Westford.
