Mayor Gray’s priorities

Mayor Gray Outlines Plans For D.C.’s $417M Budget Surplus

While council members may be clamoring to spend the budget surplus, Mayor Vincent Gray says the money will go into the savings account. He says this will help D.C. reach its goal of having two months of cash on-hand.

In other words our budget surplus will be used to make bankers even richer than they are now. Our surplus will be put into a savings account that will then be used by the bank to make loans that will make the bank rich. Which is fine, except we need that money to keep the schools open and to keep the homeless shelter at Second and D open all year long. We also need that money to open up rooms at DC General so that homeless families can be kept together rathan than have children wind up in the foster child system.

Really, Vincent Gray has truly horrible priorities and I hope that Mary Chech and the rest of them insit on doing the right thing and put poor people before bankers.
