Promises about County Budget on Carlos-O-Meter

Take back raises

"We must take back the raises that Carlos Alvarez gave. With more than 70 percent of the County’s operating budget comprised of salaries and benefits, this budget can’t be balanced otherwise.”

Cut the mayor's salary and benefits

"I'm going to cut the salary and benefits of the mayor by 50 percent."

No layoffs for police; no closed fire stations

Gimenez "pledged to maintain services and not lay off police officers" or close fire stations.
