Tonight there is the big issue of FAAS’s ask from the City Council. Last night FAAS will have had a huge rally to rile folks up to go down to City Hall and demand “fair” funding. I did not go to said meeting so I don’t know what new numbers FAAS is putting forward and why they couldn’t just release the new numbers since their old numbers were already released by the City in the third party review, but whatevs. Anyway, you can review the past FAAS posts here and here if you’re interested.
However, I will say ahead of time, if supporters of FAAS are going to message with garbage like this:
They’re going to see a lot of their support dwindle down pretty rapidly.
It’s essentially the critique that pops up, particularly during controversial issues like renter protection or building housing, that some folks in the City care more about animals or trees than they do about actual human beings. With statements like that, it’s really hard to argue that that is not true.
Today I just wanted to highlight a rally that will happen at City Hall today at 3:30 p.m. to oppose the nomination of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. Democratic congress members have been Holding the Floor to make a final stand against the nomination of Betsy (we need guns in school because of grizzlies) DeVos.
If you’re looking for a local action to resist aa truly terrible nominee, here it is.
