With the unfortunate passing of our State Representative, Jim Miceli, most of the voters in both Tewksbury and Wilmington have no representation in the Massachusetts Legislature.
The Governor has apparently decided not to name an interim representative, but rather wait for the fall election to fill this seat.
This is particularly unfortunate as clearly Representative Miceli was especially good at citizens’ concerns. Now we are left with 6 months of no one to whom to call with any problems or difficulties that we may have.
As someone said so long ago “Taxation Without Representation is Tyranny.” Perhaps Governor Baker, not wishing to appear tyrannical, will grant we the unrepresented, a 6-month credit on our 2018 State Income Tax. Just wondering!
