With a $50 million dollar budget deficit, the City will be forced to terminate 659 city employees and many services from the Tucson Police and Fire Departments, Parks and Recreation, City Court, Public Defender and City Prosecutor’s offices--- if the Core Services Tax (Proposition 400) fails at the ballot box.
Tucsonans can meet face-to face with city officials as they discuss the reasons why voters are being asked to approve a ½ cent sales tax increase (AKA Core Services Tax) on November 2.
Police Chief, Roberto Villaseñor; Fire Chief, Patrick Kelly; City Manager, Mike Letcher; Director Parks & Recreation, Fred Gray; and Roberto Bedoya, Executive Director Tucson Pima Arts Council make up the round table. Bob Kovitz, Chair, Access Tucson Board of Directors will moderate.
