State Senate Candidates’ Night – Part 1 – Taxing Retirement Income

Rather than staying up late tonight to write a comprehensive article on the League of Women Voters Candidates’ Night for those seeking State Senate seats, I think I’ll do separate articles on varioius questions.

First up, whether they would tax retirement income and health benefits.

I did not take verbatim notes, by the way.

32nd District

Craig Wilcox and Mary Mahady

  • Craig Wilcox – “No.” Ge said the state’s problem is a spending problem.
  • Mary Mahady – “No.” She said that there “will be additional sources of income to offset our fiscal shortfall.”

33rd District

Don DeWitte and Nancy Zettler

  • Don DeWitte – “No.  We do not have a revenue problem in this state.  We have a spending problem.”
  • Nancy Zettler – “No.”  She talked of the “massive spending problem [of] hundreds of millions of tax dollars given away to business.”  She also commented on TIF [Tax Increment Financing] Districts, but I make notes beyond that.

26th District

Dan McConchie and Tom Georges

  • Dan McConchie – “No.”
  • Tom Georges –  “No.”
