Jonathan Fulford recognizes that building a strong economy requires a fair tax policy in Maine. Lobbyists have sold current Maine legislators on the “trickle-down” theory that cutting income tax rates for large corporations and wealthy individuals would result in more jobs and prosperity.

But while those at the top have benefitted greatly from lower income taxes, the promised jobs have not developed. And lower tax revenues have depleted state revenue sharing with communities and school districts, forcing them to increase property taxes on the rest of us.

Fulford’s tax policies will lower property taxes and restore revenue sharing for public schools and essential services by insuring that wealthy individuals pay their fair share of the tax burden. Vote Fulford on Nov. 8.
