MEMPHIS, Tenn. – While the Blue Flu and Red Rash continues, some Memphians joined together Saturday morning to do what they can to get the fallout from the cuts resolved.
A couple dozen people the day at the Dave Wells Community center in North Memphis to show support for officers and firefighters and ask city leaders to find another way to close budget gaps.
The city council recently voted to cut health care benefits to all city employees and retirees.
This weekend’s community rally comes just a few days before Tuesday’s city council meeting where Memphians are invited to offer suggestions about how the city can patch a budgetary mess without costing city police and firefighters.
