Because through the pain and trauma of this past year, we showed who we are — and defined what we believe in.
This is a city whose people never run from tough challenges — we rise together to meet them. This is a city unafraid to acknowledge where we’re falling short and committed to doing better. This is a city in a state of becoming — becoming more equal, more just, kinder, and resilient.
To guide our way forward, I have put forward an ambitious roadmap for the year ahead: my proposed budget for fiscal year 2021-22 is the biggest I’ve ever presented as your mayor and the most progressive of any city in America.
Proposed Budget https://www.lamayor.org/
It’s a recovery budget — building and deepening our COVID-19 response efforts, delivering tests, PPE, and vaccines to Angelenos, allowing our businesses to reopen and hire up, and supporting our tourism and hospitality industries.
It’s a Back to Basics budget — restoring our city services to where they were before the pandemic, with everything from arts and culture programming to gang reduction and youth development, youth employment, and litter removal, to vital investments in our infrastructure, clean streets, and safe neighborhoods.
