I have not watched this yet, but I hope they rake Arriola over the coals. Arriola has got to go. Actually, as I understand it, the Council has little control over this budget. This is one of those offices that is called a "constitutional office" established by state law and operates off of it's own revenues.
While I watched almost every one of the Mayor’s budget hearings, I have not yet watched many of the Council budget hearings. Sometimes things like work and family and life get in the way of my effort to stay informed. I intend to watch them and provide commentary as time allows. I want to see where savings are possible and I want to see if any council members are distinguishing themselves by asking the hard questions and making the department heads squirm or it the budget hearings are a sham and a love fest.
I am posting video of the various council budget hearings and will provide an update and commentary later.
If you watch the video and have an insight or observation, please share and leave a comment.
