Dear Friends,

At today’s City Council meeting, under agenda item 19, an attempt will be made by Rep. Cassandra Hernandez and her allies to override the Mayor’s veto of $96 million of certificates of obligation. That is debt issued without voter approval. If the veto fails, we will have more than $730M in outstanding CO debt, which is totally obscene from any standpoint.

Here is how you can call in to support the Mayor’s veto.

See you there.
