Our goal is to stop Bloomberg’s proposed budget from passing the City Council. We need to educate, agitate and pressure our city council members NOT to vote for this budget between now and June 29th! Join us any time of the day or night.
CALL your council member and urge them to commit NOT to vote for this budget! http://tinyurl.com/nyccouncilmembers
DEMAND your council member issue a public statement that they will NOT vote for this Budget. New Yorkers need strong leadership from the city council members who oppose Bloomberg’s budget.
ATTEND city council committee hearings to voice your opposition to Bloomberg’s budget. Council committee hearings are open to the public, and are held daily between now and when the budget will be voted on, mostly at 250 Broadway (at Murray St. across from City Hall). Get the full calendar of city council committee meetings here: http://legistar.council.nyc.gov/Calendar.aspx
COME DOWN to Bloombergville for whatever time you can spare. Attend our public assembly meetings and the RALLIES!
SUPPORT Bloombergville by bringing water, food, and FLYER PRINTOUTS for the folks there (see “Things the Public Can Do Now” flyer on left).
