I work on local DC issues. I wanted to send you a link to a site about the DC budget. In the absence of good local reporting, it’s got information for the public about the impact of Council’s proposals. It also is trying to get residents to send a petition to DC Council over the cuts in social service programs and lack of revenue options (like rescinding the tax break given to the richest residents two years ago). We’ve had over 1200 DC residents sign the petition in the last 24 hours, and I hope you’ll share this with your readers: http://www.saveoursafetynet.
