Rally to STOP community Board budget cuts at city hall steps today
Manhattan CB1 committee chair John Fratta said that the "equal" cuts that Mayor is proposing for the community boards is contrary to what happened when the city budget allowed for increases in all city agencies. He went on to say that community boards never got a budget increase when times were good, and now that times are not too good, the mayor says he has to make "equal" cuts all around. Fratta: "it's a farce".
