YWN EXCLUSIVE: According to several reliable sources, Priority 7 vouchers, which were eliminated from this year’s budget, have been restored by 50 percent. YWN tried reaching Councilman David Greenfield, who has been leading the effort to restore the funding, but were told that he is in negotiations at city hall and is unavailable for comment.
If this in fact correct, it would be a major victory for the newly elected Greenfield in a year that the city is facing a $3.2 billion deficit. YWN will update you as we get more information.
