WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — Candidate for 8th Middlesex State Representative Marty Lamb (R-Holliston) announced today that, if elected, he will push for studies to potentially end independent state authorities.
In a press release, Lamb named the Mass. Water Resources Authority, Mass. Bay Transit Autority, Convention Center and Massport, while excluding local housing authorities.
"The state legislature just had to bail out the MBTA and yet we know very little about the T's pension system," Lamb said in the release. "I think the payouts for the pension should be public information."
Lamb identified adding the Mass. Pike under the umbrella of the Department of Transportation as the type of proactive legislation he approves of, which will help save the state and taxpayers money.
"The people of Massachusetts have every right to expect accountability with their state government not excluding authorities. Whether it is expense or safety issues the buck has to stop somewhere," said Lamb in the release. "I will be a proactive leader for the district."
Lamb is facing off against incumbent Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston) in the November election.
