As you well know, a change to the Maine Constitution requires a vote not only from the legislature but from the Maine people. But the Maine people cannot vote on this unless you pass this resolution. As the Governor has been travelling the state these last several months, he has heard the voice of the people of Maine loud and clear, and he’s asking you to do the same. Give your constituents the respect of letting them decide how they’d like to be taxed. Let the voters decide if it is finally time to eliminate the income tax in Maine. The Governor applauds Representative Fredette and his cosponsors President Thibodeau, Representative Espling, Senator Cushing and Senator Mason for joining him in an effort to let the Maine people take their future into their own hands and prevent future legislatures from reinstating the harmful effect of the State income tax.
