Proposition 2 1/2 was meant for emergencies only
When Proposition 2 1/2 was passed, it was meant to be used only for emergencies and not to routinely bloat the salaries and benefits of our public sector unions.

Examine this graph that shows Framingham's general Fund from 1990 thru 2012. Future year amounts were derived from Framingham's five year projection .

Framingham's taxes increase by about 4 1/2 percent each year thru Proposition 2 1/2 and new growth in the town. Basically, the town is making money hand over fist. Now look at the Framingham's overall finances

See any emergencies?

Our town governmnt is 90% unionized (some 20 unions). The largest is the Framingham teachers union . Check out my union contract notes .

The children will invariably used to garner more money for the teachers union.
