Our budget is a moral document.
It shows what New York City thinks is worth its time and investment. This is the greatest city in the world, but faced with the rising costs of living and working here, too many hard-working New Yorkers are struggling to get by. We need to spend the City's money as carefully - and with the same priorities - as the New Yorkers who need to make every dollar count. That's the only way to fix today’s problems and invest in a better tomorrow.
