Don’t Miss It — Special Budget Meeting, Tuesday, 5:00 p.m.

If you are a member of Make Oakland Better Now!, it’s because you care about the city addressing its obligations to keep us safe, to fix our infrastructure and to be transparent.  If the city cannot balance its budget, it simply won’t be able to address any of these issues.  That’s the subject of the meeting today,  February 16,  5:00 p.m. at City Hall.  As V Smoothe put it, come watch the Budget magic show!  Tricks galore!  Smoke! Mirrors!

There will be all of those for sure.  So be there, and fill out a speaker card.  Tell the  City Council members they have to  act responsibly and get the city’s financial house in order.

We previously wrote council, and our letter, based on your survey results, is hereHere’s a follow-up, with more survey results.  Hope to see you Tuesday at 5:00 p.m.
