Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua hit with a $5,475 tax lien

Just days after announcing his reelection bid, Mayor William Lantigua of Lawrence has been hit with a $5,475 tax lien for allegedly failing to pay state income tax in 2011.

The state Revenue Department filed the lien against Lantigua last week, the embattled mayor’s latest misstep in a three-year tenure dogged by controversy. The agency took the step after Lantigua did not respond to several notices over at least six months, a spokeswoman said.
