Mayor Bowser #FreshStartFeb Budget Engagement Forums Message


HI.
I’M MAYOR MURIEL BOWSER. A MONTH IN, AND I COULD NOT BE
PROUDER TO BE YOUR MAYOR. ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, I PROMISED TO DELIVER FOR
THE DISTRICT A FRESH START. AND THAT’S WHAT MY
ADMINISTRATION IS DOING. AS A CITY, WE HAVE
GREAT OPPORTUNITIES AND BIG CHALLENGES. WE ARE GROWING AT
AN HISTORIC RATE, BUT WE ALSO FACE A QUARTER-
BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET GAP. WE HAVE TOUGH CHOICES TO
MAKE AS WE WRITE OUR BUDGET FOR THE NEXT YEAR. TOGETHER, WE WILL TACKLE
THIS CHALLENGE HEAD-ON. MY ADMINISTRATION WILL
ENSURE THAT WE ARE SPENDING YOUR TAX MONEY
EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY. BETWEEN FEBRUARY 19TH AND THE
23RD, I WILL HOST A SERIES OF BUDGET ENGAGEMENT FORUMS THAT
WILL GIVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHAPE OUR CITY’S
BUDGET PRIORITIES. THE PUBLIC FORUMS WILL BE ON
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH AT WOODROW WILSON SENIOR HIGH
SCHOOL AT 7:00 P.M. AGAIN ON SATURDAY,
FEBRUARY 21ST AT ANACOSTIA SENIOR HIGH
SCHOOL AT 1:00 P.M. AND FINALLY ON MONDAY,
FEBRUARY 23RD AT DUNBAR SENIOR
HIGH SCHOOL AT 7:00 P.M. VISIT MAYOR.DC.GOV
FOR MORE INFORMATION. TOGETHER WE WILL DISCUSS WAYS
TO MAKE OUR CITY GREENER, HEALTHIER, SAFER, AND
MORE FISCALLY STABLE THAN WE FIND IT TODAY. I LOOK FORWARD TO
WORKING WITH YOU.

Danny Hutson
