City Paper Covers Budget Situation

Washington City Paper Covers the Mayors Proposed Budget Cuts!

My testimony at the hearing last week focused on the violation of public trust. How can the Council set up these special funds, fees, or taxes and get public approval because the funds go to a special purpose–clean up the Anacostia, renewable energy, Children’s health.. And then turn around and move the money any which way. CM Cheh, called it a shell game and she was right.

Please call the Mayor and your Council member and tell them to restore funding to DC enviromental programs.
