We just got a copy of an email Library Director Siobhan Reardon sent yesterday to library staffers about today's budget rally at 2 p.m.*
PhillyClout wonders if workers citywide are getting the same message? And will they have to use personal time if they choose to attend or will they be on the clock? You may recall that last year before the Phillies Parade, Managing Director Camille Barnett instructed workers that they had to take personal time to attend the parade.
We've asked the press office these questions and will update when we get more info. Here's Reardon's note:
This is a head-up that the Mayor will be hosting a rally/press announcement tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. which is designed to encourage State lawmakers to get serious about resolving their budget impasse. The message will include dramatic impacts on all city departments if there is further delay.
We will be sending Boards members and community advocates to attend this rally. The mayor needs everybody to come and stand up for the City.
