Eric Garcetti Polls Citizens on Prioritizing Stimulus Dollars

You can go here to register your top three priorities for the spending of federal stimulus dollars in LA. Your choices?

  • Infrastructure: Street lights, sidewalks, repaving
  • Afterschool programs
  • Gang intervention programs
  • Community centers/senior centers
  • Permanent housing for homeless
  • Neighborhood beautification: medians, plantings
  • Foreclosure prevention & counseling
  • Career training centers

So. What will you vote for? I chose gang intervention, afterschool programs, and permanent housing for homeless.

There’s also a field where you can make suggestions–do you have a write-in idea for how to spend the stimulus cash? Ha. Hahaha. I just bet you do.
