Mayor Quan promised a proposed budget would be released in March. Instead, she issued a report telling us the City’s finances are bleak and the City has cut a lot already. She also has a long list showing what the budget savings if the City cut 15% from every department. But there isn’t much in the way of a plan for those cuts, or for anything else.
In fact, what the Mayor has released isn’t a budget at all, and doesn’t contain much of anything in the way of real solutions. So MOBN! has proposed we give the mayor a do-over. Read about it at A Better Oakland.
