On Wednesday, March 3rd, I will present my proposed FY2011 budget to the Board of Aldermen. As in years past, I will host community budget presentations during the month of March where residents will have the opportunity to review my proposed budget, ask questions and offer comments. The first presentation will be held at Edgewood School on March 10th at 6:30 pm and the second will be at Nathan Hale School on March 23rd at 6:30 pm. I encourage residents to attend one of these meetings to learn about the proposed 2010-2011 budget. Click here to see my proposed budget.

On Monday, March 8th at 10:30 a.m., Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro and I will be holding a press conference to kick-off the 2010 Census in New Haven. An accurate count of our City’s population will ensure that New Haven has the appropriate number of political representatives and that our community receives the necessary federal funding for schools, economic development, public safety and social services over the next 10 years. Census forms will be mailed to City residents on March 15th and should be mailed back as soon as possible. The form takes about 10 minutes to fill out and all information is kept confidential.
The Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut will be hosting the 24th annual Centenarian Luncheon on May 5th, 2010. If you know anyone who is 100 years or older this year, please contact Janiss at email@example.com or 203-785-8533 to ensure that they receive an invitation to this free event.
