On May 19, the City Council will begin reviewing the City Manager's proposal, and I would like to read your views of this proposal. Tell me what you like about it -- or what you don't like. More importantly, tell me what you would do if you were in my shoes to address the gap.
Your thoughtful responses are appreciated. Subscribers will receive an email at the end of the process summarizing my actions and vote on the city budget.
