Ward 6 Budget Town Hall Meeting

We are less than 24 hours from the Ward 6 Budget Town Hall Meeting, and Mayor Gray hopes to see you and hear from you!

Today's budget proposal fact: There will be a 8% reduction in funds for the Department of Health and Human Services. That is $113.4 Million. You can go to budget.dc.gov to read how the $113.4 Million is broken out across the department. Some residents want to see the taxes of the wealthiest residents increased further than what has been proposed (read my email earlier in the week) while a segment of people feel the government is already doing too much and should cut further.  It is very important that Mayor Gray hears the opinions of Ward 6 and here is the information for tomorrow's town hall meeting:
