Auditor Candidate Amore Hits Beacon Hill Dodge on Tax Relief


Citing a commitment made in May by Senate President Karen Spilka to "pursue a tax relief package for residents before the end of the session," which traditionally ends June 30, and this week’s cancellation by Spilka and House Speaker Ron Mariano of a meeting with Governor Baker to discuss tax relief for seniors, Anthony Amore, candidate for Massachusetts Auditor, is sounding off.

"Actions speak louder than words, and all I'm hearing about tax relief from the House and the Senate is more empty promises," said Amore. "Beacon Hill needs more elected leaders watching out for tax-paying families. As an independent State Auditor not beholden to one-party rule, I will make sure our tax money is being used wisely and will push to return unused funds back into the pocketbooks of our residents,” he said.

His comments came even as the tiny Republican contingent in the house lost yet another member to a resignation.

“Massachusetts voters want checks and balances to win the day, and I plan to carry on Governor Baker's legacy of bipartisanship if elected."

According to his campaign web site,  Amore has more than 30 years of experience in investigations, audits, and inspections. His career has spanned both the public and private sector, and he has served as a federal agent, senior Homeland Security Official, and museum security director. He is also the author of three best-selling books, including the New York Times Crime Best Seller The Art of the Con, which dissected high-value fraud schemes in the art world.
