Kudos on Budget Coverage

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 11, 2007

Dear Editor,
    Many thanks for your outstanding coverage of developments in the lead-up to final approval by City Council this week of the city of Austin's fiscal year '07/'08 budget [“Beside the Point,” News, Aug. 24]. Highly important "citizens' right to know" issues have surfaced over recent weeks – and despite your highly professional pursuit (i.e., as “the Fourth Estate") by also publishing numerous letters from concerned citizens to the Chronicle's editor [“Postmarks,” Sept. 7], many of the questions raised both in your columns and these letters about accountability of public officials on affordable-housing matters are yet to be answered. Gray Panthers – and the public – intend to keep on keeping on! Thanks.
