The sharp disagreement occurred during a face-to-face meeting between the two men before a key constituency--local officials. I am not in favor of any additional tax burdens on the people of Massachusetts, Reilly told the local officials.
But Patrick said he would support increases on what are known as local-option taxes, saying they would help cities and towns manage their budgets without having to raise local property taxes. Im interested in trusting you -- the local officials, Patrick said. I know whats happening in your communities.
