New MOBN! Guest Post at A Better Oakland

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.
