BOSTON (AP) — Top officials from Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration are fanning out across the state to sell the public on his package of tax hikes and increased spending on education and transportation.
On Tuesday morning Secretary of Administration and Finance Glen Shor is scheduled to speak at the Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce Annual Legislative Breakfast in Dracut.
The next day Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Greg Bialecki is set give a keynote address on the importance of infrastructure investments at a South Shore Chamber of Commerce lunch in Randolph.
Other events are scheduled for New Bedford, Westborough, Worcester and Marlborough.
Patrick is trying to build support for his plan to increase the income tax but lower the sales tax as lawmakers begin crafting their own state budget proposals.
