There is enough pie for everyone!
Mayor Hales and City Council say there is a $25 million shortfall. The City of Portland’s 2013-14 proposed austerity budget proposes 10% cuts, which means laying off 395 people and cutting essential service including: housing programs, community centers, jobs, funding for parks maintenance, SUN after-school programs, youth employment services, fire stations, Multnomah Youth Commission, East Portland Action Plan and much more.
There is an alternative to austerity. We can stop giving tax breaks to rich corporations and individuals, tap Internal Service Funds, and prevent job loss and preserve vital services.
We don’t have to fight over crumbs!
Join us as we unite our community to stop the cuts and raise revenue!
Wear red if you can to show solidarity.
