There’s good news for the Mission City coming in the way of new federal dollars, about $26 million of it.
According to Congressman Ro Khanna, “The American Rescue Plan will bring over $1 billion for counties and cities in our district — an unprecedented amount of financial investment.”
Khanna’s office broke down the funding this way:
It will be interesting to see if the Council majority that voted to cut police services will now reconsider. The spotlight for reconsideration will be on Councilmembers Karen Hardy, Raj Chahal, Suds Jain and Kevin Park.
NOTE: Monday’s column will have a recap of this week’s two-part and very long Council meetings.
[…] Last Friday, we ran a story about Santa Clara getting $26 million in COVID relief funds. This fills a big hole in the City budget and should restore police services that a majority of the City Council voted to cut. […]
I agree with Howard. When you work for the government you’re completely taken care of. You have all of your benefits and you get paid whether your work or not. At the same time you’re still accruing retirement.
These these Independent business people that we all rely on got zip! All these folks received was debt. The bills keep coming and no income to help, remember both professionally and personally. The rogue council members don’t care because that doesn’t get them closer to Jed.
I would like to see the bulk of this go to business that were forced to close. Not to teachers that got paid and don’t want to open the schools. (more correctly the teacher’s unions, not the individuals.)
