How would you spend $1 million in your neighborhood? It’s time for participatory budgeting again! Every year the members of the 36th district is asked to participate in a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. This is grassroots democracy at its best. It helps make budget decisions clear and accessible. It gives real power to people who have never before been involved in the political process. And it results in better budget decisions because who better knows the needs of the community than the people who live there?You can help decide how to spend public funds on community improvements to parks, schools, libraries, streets, and more through participatory budgeting. Join an upcoming neighborhood assembly to brainstorm ideas with your community October 5, 6 and 11th. To RSVP or for more information please contact council memeber Robert Cornergy at 718-919-0740
