It’s budget time in Merced, which means it’s time to invest in youth. The Merced Youth Council is a smart investment and, thanks to the City Council, it’s already in place. Now the Youth Council needs a bit more support and guidance because it’s investments like these that transform a community. Let’s support our youth and let’s start by making sure the Youth Council gets the help it needs. This investment in them will eventually benefit all of us.
