Top anti-tax activist will back Daniel Winslow in US Senate race
BOSTON (AP) -- Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Daniel Winslow has won the backing of one of the state's top anti-tax activists.
Barbara Anderson, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, is planning to formally announce her endorsement of Winslow at a press conference on the steps of the Statehouse today.
Anderson is best known for championing Prop 2 1/2, which was approved by voters in 1980.
The measure radically changed the way cities and towns raise taxes to pay for municipal services. It limits communities from raising property taxes by more than 2.5 percent a year without approval from voters.
On Monday, Winslow unveiled his first radio ad pushing for a cut in corporate tax rates.
Winslow is facing off against fellow Republicans Michael Sullivan and Gabriel Gomez in the U.S. Senate GOP primary on April 30.
