Statement of Karyn Polito on EBT Cash Benefits

Karyn Polito, Republican candidate for state treasurer, released the following statement today concerning published reports in the Boston Herald today regarding the use of Electronic Benefits Transfer cards by recipients of Department of Transitional Assistance programs:

“People are fed up with waste and overspending in government. If I’m elected state treasurer, I’ll make sure that EBT cash benefits are used for legitimate purposes, not for lottery, alcohol and other non-essential items. The Patrick administration should ensure that these funds are being spent appropriately on behalf of the state’s taxpayers.”
