I’ll be sending out an announcement soon, but I wanted to get this on your calendars. I will be holding my next Sunnyvale Town Hall Meeting on Saturday May 19th from 3-5 p.m. at the Ortega Park building. Anything goes, but the focus will be on the proposed city budget. As usual, light refreshments will be served. I hope a lot of you will be able to attend.
I’ve always held these get-togethers in November, but I’m trying something different this time. The City Manager will be releasing his proposed 2012-13 budget a week before, and Council will have our all-day budget workshop on Thursday the 17th. So I wanted to hold a Town Hall after the proposed budget has been released but well before Council has voted on it. This way, we can get together and talk about what’s being proposed, so that you can give me feedback with plenty of time to spare. I’ll go over the high level details, I’ll tell you my thoughts, then you can tell me why I’m wrong… The discussion can be about whatever you want, and not just exclusively budget issues, but my guess is that the proposed budget will be the most interesting and timely topic.
I hope to see you there.
