Yesterday, at the NYRA-Vermont executive board meeting we discussed some of the letters our organization has received from legislators regarding the drinking age bill we are lobbying for.
The Mayor introduced the 2006 City Budget proposal at the last City Council. Having followed the finance committee meetings, I am aware of the problems and issues they faced and I understand that it was a difficult process for everyone involved. However, I noticed a couple problems regarding the budgeting process that disturb me.
Local Burlington neighborhood issues were discussed and elections were held by meeting attendees.
