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.’"

This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at lee@leeeverton.com for scheduling information.
