    Councilmember Burgess' statement on adopted city budget
    Council re-focuses budget on urgent, immediate needs


    Seattle – City Councilmember Tim Burgess, chair of the Council's Budget Committee, issued the following statement today after the Council voted unanimously to adopt the 2013-2014 City budget:

    "The Councilmembers collaborated to craft a final budget that more directly addresses the urgent needs faced by the people of Seattle. Through the Council's actions, the community will see more police on the street and will enjoy a faster and more reliable bus transportation system. The Council is also increasing vital services for our most vulnerable neighbors, including full funding of Nurse Family Partnership which empowers first-time moms and their babies living in poverty.

    "I'm grateful for the dedicated and thoughtful work of my colleagues and for the energy and engagement of the public throughout this process. Working together, we have created a budget for next year that reflects the values and priorities of Seattle residents."
