Teague: Demand mayor Torres restore recreation funding


I urge you to flood city hall’s telephone lines and demand the mayor to restore the funding for the recreation programs. As you might be aware, the Torres Administration made a decision to shutdown all summer camps and recreation programs due to cuts in municipal funding.

Whether it’s the schools’ or the city’s recreation programs it always seems like the children get the short end of the stick. I have been urging you to fight for your children for years. We can’t sit back and keep allowing city officials to place our children on the chopping block.

Let’s get it together, parents. Our children depend on us. Please understand that we are their first line of defense against the system which seeks to oppress them.

Let’s stand up and fight back!
