Eliminating Bunker Hill Day and Evacuation Day as paid holidays for state workers would save the state $5-6 million, according to the Mass. Taxpayers Foundation.

$6 million is also how much the state lacks to "renovate or preserve Massachusetts park and recreational facilities", according to this Globe opinion piece.

There is a finite supply of taxpayer money. We expect our elected officials to spend it wisely on our behalf. Spending it on 2 additional paid holidays for state workers instead of fixing up the parks that are for the enjoyment of all of us is an outrage.

(See here for how to take action to end these frivolous holidays!)
