200251 0  COMMUNICATIONThank you, Council President Clarke and members of City Council for inviting me to speak today. It’s always great to be back in this chamber. It’s hard to believe that this is already my fifth budget address as mayor. I often think of the popular saying about parenthood that many of you have probably heard.… “The days are long, but the years are short.” That pretty much sums up how it feels to be mayor. Days definitely feel long, but the years fly by…. and I know that this term will go as quickly as the first. I share this sentiment as a bit of advice for our new Councilmembers -- Kendra Brooks, Jamie Gauthier, Katherine Gilmore Richardson, and Isaiah Thomas. There is a finite period of time for each of us to make a positive impact on our city as elected officials. I look forward to working with all of you to do just that. The Fiscal Year 2021 Budget and the Five Year Plan builds on the agenda we discussed back in January just up North Broad Street at The Met. Fighting for a safer and more just city. Providing quality education for all. Delivering cleaner and safer streets. BuiREAD AND FILED   Action details Not available
