With the prospect of drastic cuts to the city’s education program, for over two hours on Monday, residents filled the City Council chambers during the budget public hearing and spoke out in opposition to the Mayor Mark Boughton’s school budget allocation as well as the Board of Education’s proposals.
After the hearing, I had a chance to talk to City Council Minority Leader Tom Saadi and get his opinion on what he heard from residents regarding the proposed budget allocation to education.
I’ll post video highlights from the public hearing later this week.
