It will be impossible for me to keep up with this schedule every week, but I'll try to post updates whenever I can. This is a tally of how the legislators for Sutton have voted on issues.

Dec 18-22, 2006
More overrides!

H5000 - overrode Gov Romney's veto, giving $200k to train doctors how to tell parents to read aloud to their kids. Callahan Y, Frost N, Moore Y
H5000 - overrode Gov Romney veto, giving $250k for renal and Lou Gehrig's disease registry. Callahan Y, Frost Y, Moore Y

Nov 27-Dec 8, 2006
Two overrides to give more money to groups. As someone who is being hit with super high taxes to keep my small business going, it's starting to bother me how much money the government spends on all sorts of extra items. It's always hard for them to vote against warm-fuzzy things, I suppose ... but if they vote for Every One, no wonder our taxes are so high in Taxachusetts ...
