the cuts in JobPath were also reversed!
When the Council approved the budget last night (see article, today’s AZ Star) by a vote of 6-1 (Kozachik opposed), city funding for JobPath was reinstated.
Yesterday, PCIC leaders and JobPath students also testified at the County Budget Hearing. The approved budget contains at least $431k for JobPath, and possibly more. Please thank Supervisors Elías, Valladez and Bronson for their votes.
if that’s not enough, JobPath celebrates its Quinceňera
tonight at El Casino Ballroom: 15 years of moving over 1,380 families out of poverty, through training and into living wage jobs. Drop by to celebrate with the 80 new JobPath graduates! Bishop Gerald Kicanas will say the opening prayer and City Rep. Paul Cunningham will be awarded the annual Jim Haag Award for his continued support.
to all of you who attended Council and Supervisor budget hearings, met with representatives, sent emails, signed letters and made calls. This started last Oct. 6th when 350 leaders secured candidate promises at the Community Issues Accountability Session at Sacred Heart Church.
