Council Finance Chair Justin Brannan Releases FY 2023 Preliminary Budget Response
New York City’s recovery requires real and meaningful investments. We cannot cut our way to prosperity. Now more than ever, New Yorkers want to know the neighbors they elected are listening and delivering tangible results.
If you want to know what someone cares about, look at what they spend money on. Our city budget is no different. More than an itemized list of income and expenditures, it is a moral manifest. Everything in this budget response is something the Council believes is worth fighting for. I’m proud of my colleagues and the dedicated staff who spent countless hours, late nights, and weekends preparing this document. While much negotiation remains, I look forward to working with Speaker Adams and my colleagues to arrive at an agreement that gives reality to a safer, fairer, and more prosperous city for all.
