Story Time is Saved!!

I can say with some assuredness, our efforts to protect the public library from budget cuts were largely responsible for the success of doing so.

Sadly, our parks took a big hit.

As a Mother Acting Up, a regular mama, a citizen, a worker, a tax payer, I'd like to be hooked in to a regular updating of what exactly our local government is working on, when proposals go up for vote, and how we can be the village that makes a consistent difference for our children by raising our voices. Anyone have notions of this? As friend Kate points out, such systems are in place nationally, but local efforts should also be in place somehow. If they don't exist, we need to make it so.


  1. Yep, I agree. Hopefully we can figure out a way to make this happen.

  2. You can subscribe to the Metro Council website, and they'll email you agendas. Also, there is a schedule of all budget meetings, a citizen's guide to the budget, and a list of times and dates for metro council broadcasts.

    Also, there are links to all financial reports.

    The problem is that they consider themselves the mountain to which we should go for info. We, as busy mamas, need the mountain to come to us.

    BTW, I enjoyed the 8/4 social pics. I had a great time there.

    Mz. Booty - when are we going to have lunch with politicians again? plz email snapdragon03
