Mayor's Office Seeking Participants for the Budget Survey

Hello BABCNC members,

I hope you are all having a great Friday.

I would like to inform you that the deadline for the Mayor's Budget Survey is on February 12, 2008. We are less than a week away from the deadline and we need your help!!!

Currently, we only have around 200 Neighborhood Council Board members that have filled out our Budget Survey. With such a low number of participants from the NC Board, it will be difficult to have data that is representative of the entire City. As the NC Board Members represent a much larger constituency in the various communities in LA, we need all board members to fill out a survey so that the groups and individuals they represent can be heard in the budget process.

I would like to ask each and every board to commit to fill out the budget survey, and to encourage all your constituencies to fill out the survey as well.

Please do not miss the opportunity to let the Mayor know where you stand on these critical issues facing the City. The deadline is February 12, 2008.

Thank you very much,

Stephen Cheung, M.S.W.
West Area Director
Neighborhood and Community Services
Office of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
