TEAM A FY 2005-06 BUDGET RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE MAYOR
Mayor Potter took a new approach to developing the Mayor’s Budget for FY 2005-06. He divided the four commissioners into two teams and assigned them various bureau portfolios.
Team A approached this task focusing on what they viewed as frontline services. Commissioners Leonard, Commissioner Saltzman and Mr. Wheeler agreed that frontline services include police, fire, and other public safety services, as well as City parks.
Way down in the budget...
Team A did not accept BHCD’s reductions in the Needle Exchange or portable toilets in St. Francis Park, currently used be many homeless people.
Way to stick up for those "frontline services" Team A! Clearly you represent your constituents: junkies and the homeless. (NOTE: These two demographics frequently overlap)
