NLPU supports Mayor Passeros budget!

While City trying to finalize next year's budget that includes funding to two more police officers, the dysfunctional BOE and it's insatiable appetite for more money is now demanding an additional $1 million.

If BOE gets their wish the City will be forced to raise taxes or cut municipal agency budgets. The current mess at BOE is arguably the tip of the iceberg. Insist they first get their house in order before rewarding them with more tax payer money to waste on show up job positions like the now infamous "climate specialist".

Tell City Councilors Just Say No to new BOE funding.
