TABOR Leader Brings Message to West End
Mary Adams, who is the statewide leader of a movement pushing for the adoption of a Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR), was the guest of honor at the annual meeting of the Portland Taxpayers’ Association held at The Danforth on June 15th.

Adams told about 25 people in attendance that the tax legislation her group was promoting was a hybrid of similar tax reform legislation around the country, designed to control government spending and “put taxpayers back in charge.” She avoided using the term TABOR, saying that the opposition had programmed people to hate TABOR. She referred to the movement by its full name-the Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

Adams was particularly critical of the American Association of Retired People for their opposition, referring to it as “the American Association for Removing People.”
