Angela Hunt Wants You to Know the Budget Cuts Are Looming

She also wants your feedback on what should and shouldn’t be cut. My suggestion: Every sixth line item. Only way to make it fair. From Ms. H:

Next year’s City budget (Oct. 2009 – Sept. 2010) is going to require serious budget cuts. I have opposed a tax increase because too many residents and families are struggling right now. I want your input on next year’s budget, and would like you to get involved in the process as soon as possible. Because of the dire state of next year’s budget, the city is holding early meetings to give a budget overview:

Tuesday, June 9
6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Goodwill Industries
3020 N. Westmoreland Rd.
Dallas, TX 75212

Monday, June 22
6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Jewish Community Center
7900 Northaven Rd
Dallas, TX 75230

Thursday, June 25
6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Winfrey Point at White Rock Lake
950 E. Lawther Dr.
Dallas, TX 75218

If there is a service that’s being cut that you would like to keep in the budget, please tell me how you propose to fund the service (is there something else you propose to cut?). I hope you will attend one of these meetings and let me know your thoughts.
