John A. MacMillan II: March 20, 1943 – August 4, 2012
FROM Citizens for Limited Taxation:
John A. MacMillan II March 20, 1943 – August 4, 2012
We’ve lost one of our great activists over the weekend, John MacMillan of Billerica.
John was there when I first became an activist in 1985, helping me start up the first mandatory seat belt law repeal ballot committee when I was a novice. John knew computers when I was just a rookie feeling my way around.
John was there, helping to organize petition drives.
John helped pull off every one we did, successfully.
Back then, I’m told, John MacMillan was also active with Citizens for Limited Taxation, with which I eventually merged my Freedom First organization. John was always there, always.
Barbara and I recently visited him at the VA hospital in Bedford. I had the honor of rolling him out in his wheelchair for a cigarette in the outside smoking area. I had a feeling this might be the last time I’d see him.
John passed away this past weekend.
Thank you, John, for
all you did for us taxpayers and citizens. I only wish you lived long enough to see the outcome of the upcoming November elections.
Sandy, stay strong. You married a strong and committed man.
