Vote April 11-19

Participatory budgeting (PB) is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. In other words, the people who pay taxes decide how tax dollars get spent. Participatory budgeting helps make budget decisions clear and accessible. It gives real power to people who have never before been involved in the political process. And it results in better budget decisions - because who better knows the needs of our community than the people who live there?

This year, twenty-four Council Members are letting residents allocate part of their capital discretionary funds, giving the community real decision-making power over more than $25 million in taxpayer money.
