City budget hearings

Posted By on Thu, Nov 25, 2010 at 6:31 AM

Little Rock has announced public hearings on the budget beginning next week. Since we'll be deficit spending again (based on regular revenue, not one-time money), I'd suggest saving the $200,000 subsidy Mayor Mark Stodola continues to insist on giving to his traveling buddies/political supporters at the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce — at a minimum until they comply with the FOI provision in the sham city "services contract." The Chamber welfare could hire 5-6 police officers.

Should the city give 4 percent raises at every level of employment, including for elected officials and $100,000-plus employees?

What's being done to get the adult center on 12th Street reopened?

Ask your own. The meetings:

6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 29, Southwest Community Center, 6401 Baseline
5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30, Dunbar Community Center, 1001 W. 16th
7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30, Northwest police substation, 10001 Kanis Road
7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2, Roosevelt Thompson Library, 38 Rahling Road.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
