Catherine Pegram

Supporters of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights referendum – Question Four on the November ballot – have filed a complaint with the state ethics commission over a mailer sent out by the city of South Portland.The mailer urges residents to vote against two referendums by explaining why the city council opposes both Question Four and Question Two. Question Two is aimed at cutting automobile excise taxes.The chairman of the Tabor campaign says he’s concerned that the city was using taxpayers’ money to tell taxpayers how to vote on the referendums.The ethics commission has asked South Portland to provide a written response to the charges.
