Los Angeles Budget Challenge_2013

Ratings: (0)|Views: 116 |Likes:
The City of Los Angeles needs your input to determine where to make cuts. Save what's important to you and your community by taking this informative survey. Don't hesitate to add your comments to expand on the reasons for your choices or to fight harder to keep or dismiss line items.

Taking the Budget Survey may also help you determine the best choices in the upcoming March 5 election. Every candidate has an opinion about the City's $200+ million deficit, but who has solid ideas on how to reduce or eliminate it?

FYI: Last year only 500 TOTAL people turned in the Budget Survey. Of that 500, only 14% of the returns came from ALL of South L.A. City Hall needs to hear from us. You can fill out and turn in the written survey by February 27. Or, take the online survey by March 4: http://la.budgetchallenge.org/pages/overview
