Patrick & Menino

Yesterday Menino was at the State House asking Deval Patrick to give Boston more aid for schools. Today he is at a ribbon cutting with Patrick announcing a summer jobs program.

If Menino really wants to push for money for schools he will bring it up with him in that face to face meeting. BPS parents who were looking for him yesterday (he wasn't at the State House) can find him today if they would like to press their case at the Mission Hill Community Center on Smith Street today at noon.

It is ironic to me that the BLS parents group invites the Mayor to speak when he is the one who is cutting the school budget despite the fact that we have level funding in the 2009 to 2010 fiscal budgets. He is the one who is cutting funding for schools, and has been threatening even greater cuts if the unions don't cut the contracts that he agreed to?
