I personally have never heard of this!!
State rep candidate Winthrop Handy, an independent business owner of 36 years, in six simple words, got to the heart of this year’s election issue at GoLocalWorcester’s debate, asking incumbent democrat Jim O’Day “How do you create a job?” O’Day didn’t answer despite the four day preparation time Handy gave when he said he was going to ask the question at the WB debate.
The answer is simple, but an issue raised by candidate Bill McCarthy may get traction. He asked if Rep O’Day is paying federal income taxes due to a federal law allowing legislators living 50 miles or more from the state house to deduct their federal income tax share for those days while in session. O’Day, by a Google Map directions search, places him 50.2 miles from Beacon Hill, and according to the original 2010 WCVB report, ‘Beacon Hill’ has technically been in session since 1988.
