Councilwoman Laura Pastor’s Statement on Budget Vote

"I was prepared to vote ‘no’ on the budget today. I could not have in good faith voted to pass the budget after hearing the stories we’ve heard over the pass few days. They are disappointing and they are sad. Our city is hurting – and we have to do something about it.

If it took delaying a budget so that we could properly address these issues, I was prepared to do so. Given Mayor Gallego’s commitment to Councilmember Garcia and myself to direct the city manager to begin the process of enacting the civilian review body and an oversight ad hoc committee – I voted ‘yes.’"
