FRAMINGHAM, MA -The Framingham Taxpayers Association, or "FTPA" has been re-established and re-activated. The organization which operates as a fiscal watchdog over "the interests of residential property taxpayers", and "advocates for fiscally responsible and cost-effective town government", is gearing up to counter any Proposition 2 1/2 tax override.
Citing the fact that taxpayers must live within their means, the group's mission is to organize voters to oppose raising taxes, and to see that municipal government lives within the means taxpayers already provide.
The FTPA was originally formed in 2003, "to serve as advocates for Framingham Taxpayers". In a press release, February 12, 2011, the FTPA lists the officers (and members of the FTPS Executive Committee), as:
Enzo Rotatori, (Chairman)
Karl Thober, (Treasurer)
Roxana Sanchez, (Secretary)
And two additional members of the FTPA Executive Committee:
Rotatori, Freeman and Prindiville were part of the founding of the original FTPA organization in 2003. The five members of the Executive Committee serve without compensation.
A press release issued earlier today promises that "Framingham residents will be reading and hearing more details regarding FTPA activity in the coming weeks and months."
