Mass Municipal Association Executive Director Geoffrey Beckwith has a guest column in this week's Newton Tab calling for municipal health insurance reform as a way to save taxpayers $100 million a year and thereby preserve local services: "We urge all voters and taxpayers to ask candidates for the Legislature for a commitment to pass strong municipal health insurance reform when the Legislature convenes in January. Otherwise, the fiscal problems we face will get worse, and local taxpayers will continue to pay more and get less in return."

Voters Count is contributing to this effort by surveying every incumbent and challenger on where they stand on this issue, and we will publish the results within the next few weeks. Sign up here to get alerted!
