Hi <<First Name>>,

Last month, I was appointed Chair of the Board of Supervisors Budget Committee. In this new role, I will be leading the Board’s work with the Mayor to develop and approve the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 budgets. 

Last Wednesday, we officially began our budget process. At the Budget and Appropriations Committee meeting, I laid out my budget principles and have asked all City agencies to report on how their new budget will reflect the following: 
  1. How are you eliminating corruption and waste?  
  2. How are you working urgently to rebuild a better city post-COVID?
  3. How are you innovating away from failed policies by focusing on impact?
Failure to abide by these principles would be a great disservice to all the residents and businesses in San Francisco who are demanding true leadership, a restoration of trust in our city government, and concrete plans to rebuild our city back better. If a city department is not clearly addressing these principles and goals, they can expect that their budget will be reduced accordingly. This moment is too urgent, our resources too constrained, for our city to continue funding any approaches that are clearly failing.   

The decisions we make in this budget will have huge consequences for the future of our city, perhaps unlike any before us. We have the opportunity to shape the future of our city right now.

Over the next few months, we will be hearing from City Departments on their proposed budgets, hosting budget town halls across the City, and engaging with our residents, small businesses, and community partners to identify our budget priorities. Read my full letter as the new Chair of the Budget Committee here.
Mission Bay Town Hall
 
Join us this Thursday, February 25th at 5:30 PM for our first Town Hall of the year focused on Mission Bay. Various City Departments have been invited to attend to present and answer questions from our residents. Please register and submit questions ahead of time here. 
Chat with Matt
 
Over the last year, I have done everything I can to stay engaged and connected with our constituents. We’ve responded to thousands of constituent emails and phone calls, held dozens of Town Halls and forums, and I am also now doing weekly Q&As on Instagram every Monday.

Before the stay at home orders, I was also doing coffees with constituents on many days of the week as well.  If you are a D6 constituent, and want to schedule a virtual “Chat with Matt,” I would love to do that! Some of these may be on weekends or before or after normal work hours, but I would love to connect with you directly. To schedule a chat, please email haneystaff@sfgov.org.
