Local government asks for public input on budget cuts

leave a comment »

Here’s a KFAI piece I did re: the government’s call for help from the public in determining where to make budget cuts. The state, city of Minneapolis and Minneapolis Public Schools are all soliciting feedback from people. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will be holding a couple community meetings next month on the subject.

My piece includes interviews with Minneapolis City Council member Robert Lilligren and Dane Smith, the president of Growth and Justice, a local think-tank that works on economic issues. Both agree that it’s a good idea to have your say, especially in such trying times.
