33 Vote Against EBT Reform, 7 Have Challengers

( – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

GoLocalWorcester hits State Rep. James O’Day over the head for his vote against EBT reform.

State Rep. James O’Day, D-West Boylston, was one of 33 House members voting against a budget amendment that would tightened the rules on the state’s Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system.

“It’s just another example of how he would rather not save people tax money and allow the abuse to continue and for abusers of the system to kick the can down the road,” said Republican Bill McCarthy, a former Worcester city council and sheriff candidate, who has been collecting signatures on his nomination papers. All papers must be turned in to the city clerk by 5 p.m. Monday.
