This afternoon, Shelby County Commissioners will be voting on the tax rate and the budget for FY 21-22. We have one last chance to ask that they pass a moral budget to increase investments that support workers, improve public transportation, increase affordable housing, and support our young people throughout the community.
Now more than ever, Commissioners must utilize this chance to pass a budget that allows citizens of Shelby County to have access to equitable opportunities for career advancement, quality healthcare, work benefits, and Covid relief for non-essential workers. We can’t allow them to pass a budget that doesn’t benefit the needs of the great citizens who work, play, and live in Shelby County.
Please take a few moments to send this letter to County Commissioners asking them to use their moral compass and pass a budget that we all can be proud of for years to come.
Standing with you,
