Come to the District 8 Town Hall Meeting hosted by Supervisor Scott Wiener and Mayor Ed Lee at Mission High School on Thursday, April 14th at 6:30. Also present will be Interim Chief of Police Godown, District Attorney George Gascon, Rec & Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg, DPW Director Ed Reiskin, and representatives of other departments.
Mayor Edwin M. Lee announced a series of District-based Budget Town Halls in the coming months that are being co-hosted by the Mayor and members of the Board of Supervisors to educate the public about the Mayor’s budget principles and to hear directly from San Franciscans about their budget concerns and ideas as the City faces a projected $380 million budget shortfall for Fiscal Year 2011-12.
“Balancing the City’s budget remains my top priority. We need a budget that will ensure that San Francisco remains fiscally solvent while we work to stimulate the local economy, create jobs and reform our pension system, so that we can continue to provide city services,” said Mayor Lee. “These district-based town halls provide direct input from residents about what they think is important. We need to consider this feedback as we balance a budget that protects and serves all San Franciscans.”
