My collaboration
My Collaboration

  • One of my experts said that this has hit her business hard, she said: “My Family had to cut down on a lot of luxuries that we were able to have a time ago.” She said: “Every penny in my house counts now.” Also she said “All of the perks and extra allowances that the mayor or any counsel members receive would go away. All salaries would be reviewed and only essential spending would happen. I would make sure that the burden isn't just placed in the lap of one class of people.”

My plan
My Plan

  • Reforming The City Budget will be the name of my program, and what I would do to fix the budget is make everyone pay a tax for their trash pick up I would charge higher rates on swimming pools. I plan on raising all the student fees. Lastly I plan to cut pay from everywhere except the things we need like cops, firemen, and some small business. I would not cut them at all I would not go near their money. I would start my pay cuts from the top, all the people in office. All salaries would be reviewed and only essential spending would happen.


  • Thanks for coming to my prensation I hope what I had to say made sense an you enjoyed and agreed with me I hope soon that the city would come out of the hole of 36 million dollars and get back on their feet. Thanks again.
