Today readers, you and I will learn at the same time what the FY 2010 budget looks like and what the Mayor is proposing in terms of cuts or additions.
That's because instead of giving the Council the budget directly, it is being released during a press conference.
This game playing has to stop. We either are working together as Council and Mayor or we're not. Protocol calls for the budget to be given to the City Council by the Mayor not also copied during a press conference. I was in city hall yesterday and I asked for a copy but couldn't get one.
So let's see what surprises are in store today.
