Showing a little courtesy toward their Republican colleagues, perhaps because the Reps are so new to the whole "reach out to the public" thing regarding the state's budget crisis, the Democratic caucus in the state lege will reschedule one of their planned public budget hearings. Instead, they are graciously encouraging the public to attend the Republicans' first-ever public budget-related "town hall."
The Democratic hearing was scheduled for Thursday, April 16 at Mesa Community College; details of the rescheduled hearing will be announced shortly.
The Republican "town hall" will be held on Thursday in the auditorium of the Civic Center Branch of the Scottsdale Public Library (3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale, 85251) at 5:45 p.m. The Maricopa County Republican Party is requesting $5 donations to the party at the door. More info here.
