We're launching a new blog, Budget Blues, to cover the financial struggles facing Massachusetts communities and their tax payers. We'll write about property tax overrides, budget cuts and some of the spending priorities cities and towns make.

We also want to hear from you, our readers, about how the Massachusetts' economic downturn, and budget crisis, have affected you. You should post your comments, as many of you already do.

This blog will replace Override Central, which has covered property tax overrides for the last two years. You'll see that it looks a little different -- Budget Blues is part of the Your Town operation that the Globe and Boston.com are building to cover Boston-area communities.

You can find the Your Town homepage by clicking on www.boston.com/yourtown. You can find Budget Blues by clicking here. It will exist on the Your Town page and a few other spots on boston.com.

Thanks very much for your interest.

David Dahl
Globe Regional Editor
