Should discretionary funds for ward services and infrastructure improvements be allocated: in equal amounts to each ward?


Yes I’m sympathetic to the view that discretionary funds should be allocated based on the needs of the ward. However, I would not be willing to sacrifice discretionary funds that could be used to improve the lives of 46th Ward citizens. However, menu funds should be part of the muchneeded discussion on prioritization of needs in the City budget. I think our public schools, for example, should be higher priority than providing discretionary funds to the wards.
