Oakland County Budget Townhall

Date: 
Thu, Apr 25, 2019 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

City:

In March, Governor Whitmer unveiled her proposed budget. It included a $507 million funding increase for schools, with a focus on students in special education and in poverty.

NOW WHAT???!!

The proposed budget has to go through a complicated process in the Legislature, and we will have to fight to get that funding increase through.

So, join us at this town hall near you for a breakdown of what's been proposed, what we still need, and how we can win it all. You'll leave with your own action plan to make a difference.
