Donovan Richards: Participate In Spending

City Councilman Donovan Richards wants people to have their say in how a million dollars is spent.

In an issued statement Richards said: Participatory Budgeting allows community residents and leaders to develop capital project ideas that will be voted on, funded up to $1 million and implemented. This democratic process allows for inclusions of community members from all backgrounds in the community and gives everyone the power to decide how their tax dollars will be spent.

Now it is time for the next phase in the process. As budget delegates you will be taking the ideas developed by community members at the neighborhood assemblies and elsewhere, and turn them into concrete proposals to put on the final ballot with the support of the District Committee, the district office and Budget Delegate Facilitators. To become a budget delegate you should attend the PBNYC budget delegate orientation:

Wednesday, December 11th 6:30 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. Councilman Richards’ Far Rockaway Office, located at 1526 Central Ave in Far Rockaway NY 11691. RSVP is required. Please call his office: 718-471-7391.
