Birmingham–Many Birmingham non-profit organizations are still reeling from the news they’ve been cut out of Mayor Larry Langford’s proposed budget for 2010. Several high profile groups are taking a hit, including Child Care Resources – which trains child care providers and offers referral services and financial assistance to working parents looking for care. Executive Director Joan Wright tells WBHM’s Tanya Ott they were shocked by this week’s news of the budget cut.
We contacted Mayor Langford’s office for an interview, but were told he was unavailable to comment.
