In our second episode recorded live at the Government Finance Officers Association 2023 annual conference in Portland, OR - and our final episode of Season 1 - we visit with Katie Johnston, Budget Manager for the City of Tacoma, WA and Professor Matthew Stitt, Director and National Lead for Equitable Recovery and Strategic Financial Initiatives at PFM. We discuss why financial sustainability is an equity issue, how Covid changed citizen expectations for community engagement in budgeting, and the challenges of measuring how resource allocation affects equitable outcomes, among many other topics.
