COTS and the FCPS FY15 Budget Public Hearings

0_0_0_0_187_139_csupload_63360322_large

TESTIMONY FROM LAST WEEK

 
During the Public Hearing before the School Board on the Superintendent’s Proposed Budget last week, COTS shared its concern that the Superintendent did not recommend that the school system ask the Board of supervisors for enough money to avoid cuts to programs important to COTS kids – like needs based staffing and summer school.  COTS’ members testimony can be read here: 
FCPS School Board Public Hearing No.4 – FY 2015 Advertised Budget

Watch the video of the FCPS Budget hearing!  Dr. Lolita Mancheno-Smoak, Avis Catchings, Tina Hone and other COTS representatives testify beginning at the 53 minute mark.

NEXT STEPS  
The Board of Supervisors must also hear from COTS!  Public hearings before the Board of Supervisors on the County Budget are scheduled for April 8, 9 and 10.  Sign up is already open.  Please, sign up to speak on behalf of COTS kids!  
You can sign up to speak by calling the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at 703-324-3151.  You can also sign up online at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/bosclerk/speaker_bos.htm  When you sign up to speak, please say you are testifying on behalf of the Coalition of The Silence.  We must show our strength as a Coalition.  Stay tuned for information on future conference calls to go over key message points and develop powerful testimony! 
IN THE MEANTIME
 
Between now and the Board of Supervisors public hearings, COTS has and will continue to meet with individual members of the Board of Supervisors.  In these meetings, COTS shows its support for Superintendent Garza but also expresses our legitimate disappointment that she did not ask for enough funding to avoid cuts to summer school and needs based staffing.  COTS also shares its profound concern that given the magnitude of student growth in FCPS, if the BOS does not provide adequate funding, all kids will suffer in FCPS – not just COTS kids.

The economy, and not immigration, is the most important issue for Latinos

During the President’s State of the Union last Tuesday we asked you to answer one question: Which issue is of most importance to you? According to our respondents, 41% of you told us that the economy continues to be a top priority, followed by 21% healthcare reform, and 17% immigration reform. 
Latino Issues 2014Yet, during the last five years we have seen a weakened economy, the launch of a healthcare reform law that according to the CBO, will reduce the number of full-time workersby more than 2 million in coming years, and a lack of leadership from this Administration to fix our broken immigration system in a bipartisan manner.

You know, there has been much talk about “inequality” lately by the President, but our nation was built on the backs of hard working people who deserve more than speeches disguised as appeals to class resentments and bad government policy by this Administration.

LIBRE is listening to your concerns and will continue working to provide our communities with the tools that lead to prosperity in the United States. We must take action against the policies that stifle opportunity with more burdensome regulation and regulation and strive to divide the country even further.
