Our voice was loud at the Evening Budget Hearing in 2019
More than 600 people from around San Diego County attended and more than 100 of them testified. Testimony was limited to two minutes and lasted more than 3 hours. It did not end until after 9 pm.
We really appreciate everyone who supported Invest in San Diego Families and its budget recommendations.
The Board of Supervisors will vote on the final budget at 2 pm, Tuesday, June 25.
We will find out if they listened to us. Follow this link to RSVP if you can join us. The meeting is expected to be between one and a half and two hours.
BACKGROUND: For a generation, San Diego County has under-invested in staffing and services and San Diegans have suffered. After years of organizing and advocacy, we are beginning to be heard. This year’s proposed budget has begun to reverse that trend with unprecedented investment in staffing and services because of Invest in San Diego Families advocacy. This investment still is not enough, though, and there is one more opportunity to tell the members of the Board of Supervisors to Invest in San Diego Families before they finalize the budget during the comment period and at the June 13 evening budget hearing.
