Mayor, council sell out city youth
I am writing in response to Tuesday's Baltimore Sun article "Baltimore City Council approves budget." The lack of attention and care that Baltimore's youth are receiving is appalling. In 2009, approximately 9,000 summer jobs were funded for Baltimore City's youth, whereas the article states that this year there will only be about 5,000 summer jobs. This is not good enough. Closing the budget shortfall by making deep cuts to youth programs is hurting our children. They deserve better.
