Day on the Hill 2011
1,500 members -- a new record -- lobbied legislators March 22 during Council 5's Day on the Hill. After a raucous rally in the Rotunda, members hit the hallways, offices and conference rooms to meet their legislators -- or at least the legislators who didn't bail out. Legislative Republicans have introduced more than 50 toxic bills that attack public-sector workers and put public services at risk. They want to give hundreds of millions of dollars in tax cuts to their rich friends and corporate donors. And they want public workers to pay for it with wage and benefit cuts. Our message: Save services, save jobs, tax the rich.
