Karen May's "Cuts & Coffee" Listening Session

"Cuts & Coffee" Listening Session
Karen is seeking suggestions from constituents on how to cut the State's budget and reduce spending. Attendees may fill out a form describing their proposals to be evaluated by the legislature. To encourage creative thinking on reducing spending, new suggestions that are legal and result in actual savings will result in a monetary award to the individual who proposes the cut.

The first Cuts & Coffee session will be Saturday, March 5, from 9:00 to 10:30 am in the lobby of the Highland Park Library, 494 Laurel Avenue.
