Setti Warren on Tax Reform
Raise taxes on wealthy; close loopholes
Warren wasn't shy about his willingness to raise taxes, and expressed his support for the
Fair Share Tax Amendment, the "millionaire's tax" that will be on the ballot next year, as well as closing loopholes in the tax code.

Eliminate tax breaks; wealthy pay their fair share
Confronting economic inequality is the challenge of our time, and Setti Warren is prepared to lead the way. Despite years of strong economic growth, our state budget is a mess.
Fixing it starts with telling the truth: we must raise revenue by eliminating tax breaks for special interests and asking those who make more than a million dollars a year ($20,000 a week!) to pay their fair share.
In 2015, Setti launched DataStat Newton. This program tracks everything from the recycling rate and number of potholes filled to auto-pedestrian accidents and changes in the city's commercial tax base.
With DataStat, Setti and his team have been able to make smart, data driven decisions and track outcomes.
