I am Colin D. Nealon, owner of Consignment Galleries, a family-run consignment store that has been in business for 25 years. We sell used furnishings, china, rugs, lamps, etc. These items come from local families who are downsizing or need to sell items to help their incomes. Our buyers are from many places, so we recommend other local businesses that would be of interest to them.
In recent years, our business has been given a much-needed boost from the movie set designers, the loss of which would be a serious blow to our existence. The movie business is very important to us, and there are other similar concerns in the area. During the harsh February, our only sales came through Twentieth Century Fox.
The existence of the movie business is of great help to the state. Thus we ask that you vote to keep this business functioning locally by voting against eliminating the tax incentives for the movie industry.
