Final forum for citizen input on budget

    Tonight is the last of four forums where Philadelphians can say what they’d cut and which taxes they would raise to address the city’s 1-billion-dollar budget shortfall. Citizen input from the forums will be provided to the city before Mayor Nutter makes budget decisions. WHYY’s Elizabeth Fiedler reports participants are making some of their priorities clear.
