No Revenue Strategy in PA

Uploaded: Dec 21, 2013
We need consistent, predictable revenue streams to support what is a vibrant community.

My assertion calls for our city leadership to take a strategic view and plan that will accomplish that objective.

Palo Alto is not alone as cities go in terms of just hoping taxes will fund things, with no effort to develop funding that can address the consistent needs of Palo Alto, whether it is in a prosperous status, as it is now, or a challenged state, which we experienced a few years ago.

There can be a great deal of hue and cry about particular officials in Palo Alto. My question for any of them, elected, appointed, or staff, is what is the City's revenue strategy?

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
