Councilmember Charles Allen (Ward 6-D) will host his annual Ward 6 Budget Town Hall on from 8 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 15. In an effort to be as accessible as possible while still being safe, the event will once again be held virtually.
At the annual event, Allen and Ward 6 neighbors walk through the budget as proposed by the Mayor, explain the DC Council budget process and how residents can weigh in on that. He also shares his own budget priorities and opens the floor to Ward 6 residents to hear what you want to prioritize.

How to Watch

The event will be held on Zoom, and streamed to Allen’s Facebook page as well. You can view either way free and without having an account. Please RSVP in advance to receive the Zoom link. You will receive the link via email next Tuesday afternoon if you have RSVP’d.

You can watch on Facebook without RSVP’ing by simply heading to Facebook.com/CMCharlesAllen at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 15.

Ask a Question or Comment During the Event

There are several ways for you to participate in the Ward 6 Budget Town Hall.

Submit a Video in Advance Last year, Allen’s team experimented with pre-recorded video as a way to give residents a chance to ask their question or comment as part of the event. You can record yourself and upload the video to my team here in just a few minutes.

In order to try and accommodate everyone, please keep your submission to around 30 seconds or less. It is possible that not every comment will be shown due to time constraints, but Allen will do his best to make sure questions cover the range of topics submitted.

Submit a Comment or Question During the Budget Town Hall: Throughout the event, staff will monitor for comments and questions submitted through either the Q+A tool within Zoom and via the Facebook comments.

This Ward 6 Budget Town Hall is for all Ward 6 neighbors to hear and communicate directly with me as their representative on the Council.If you have a specific issue that you really want to weigh in on, and you aren’t a Ward 6 resident, you can submit testimony to the Council committee with oversight of the issue.
