Consider attending a Community Budget Meeting!

The idea behind these meetings is to give the public an opportunity to see and hear the budget information that the Council has seen and heard over the last 90 days. During that time, the Council heard from the Comptroller for the State of Tennessee and Metro Finance Director Kevin Crumbo about the size and scope of the city’s budget problems and the types of solutions that are available.

City officials to make sure the public has this same information and an opportunity to talk about it before Mayor Cooper presents his budget on March 31, 2020. Meetings will be facilitated by Councilmember At-Large Bob Mendes and District 2 Councilmember Kyonzté Toombs.

One can be sure that the advocates of higher taxes will be attending these meetings.  For those who oppose higher taxes, to be effective they need to be informed.   I have observed over the years that conservatives only show up at the last minuet to oppose a tax increase while liberals fight day in and day out for bigger government. Advocates of bigger government are generally better informed and better equipped to argue their case. The new energized progressive are organizing for a tax increase and they are tuning out people to attend these meetings.
