Letter to the community from CMS.
Dear Mecklenburg County Community Members,
The North Carolina General Assembly is in the final stages of completing the state’s 2013-2015 budget. These budget decisions will have a lasting impact on our schools, employees and students. It will also impact our ability to provide a skilled, competitive workforce that is vital to a thriving economy. We wanted to share with you the attached op-ed about the budget and how it may affect public education, which was published in today’s Charlotte Observer. You can engage in the budget process by contacting your state legislators and sharing your thoughts on upcoming budget decisions. A list of elected officials can be found at http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/representation/WhoRepresentsMe.aspx. We will continue to advocate for our district and keep you informed as lawmakers reach final decisions.
