If you drive down Del Paso Boulevard, you’ll probably see the business windows lined with signs saying “Protect Sacramento” which begs the question, “what is Protect Sacramento?”.
Put simply, Protect Sacramento is a coalition of the city’s police and fire unions, and neighborhood groups opposing the city’s proposed budget cuts to public safety. The group assembled and demonstrated prior to last week’s city council meeting regarding the police department’s budget, and later assembled in council chambers.
City Council will discuss the proposed budget for the fire department tomorrow night, so you can be confident Protect Sacramento will be in the house.
Visit Protect Sacramento’s website for more information about their campaign.
