Busline Blog: Oakland budget miscellany
on April 25, 2009
A few Oakland budget extras, for those of you who follow those sorts of things. First, the city has come up with a nifty interactive game you can play to try to balance the budget yourself, complete with fun budget facts. Check it out here if stepping up to the mic isn’t your style. Second, hear a short radio piece I produced after last week’s meeting over at the J-school radio website, northgateradio.com. Third, come on out to the final town hall Monday night! It’s at 6:30PM at the Lakeside Garden Center by Lake Merritt. If you can’t make it, check back Tuesday morning for my full report.
