Treasurer Tim Cahill addresses the Chamber

This morning, Massachusetts State Treasurer and Independent gubernatorial candidate Tim Cahill addressed members of the Greater Boston Chamber at a Government Affairs Forum at the Boston Harbor Hotel. In his address, Cahill spoke of the state’s “lost decade” of job growth and reinforced the need to create jobs and restore the Commonwealth’s entrepreneurial spirit.

He introduced his economic recovery plan, the Commonwealth Entrepreneurial Tax Relief program, which is designed to help reduce business costs, particularly for small businesses as he states that they are the economic generators of our region, and restore the Commonwealth’s competitiveness. Part of Cahill’s plan includes providing entrepreneurs with tax relief during the first three years of business by waving the income tax, waving the unemployment tax for each employee up to five, and providing relief from sales tax for business expenditures. He claims that this program will help establish new businesses, create jobs and reduce unemployment, and reinvest in the state’s economy.
