From the Willow Glen Resident, June 22nd:
Theater program is saved from cuts
The San Jose City Council voted on June 14 to retain neighborhood watch programs and the Young People's Theater at the Kirk Community Center.
"Our neighborhoods are at the core of San Jose's community policing effort," Mayor Ron Gonzales said.
The council also voted to save the Young People's Theater by increasing parent fees and volunteer participation. Willow Glen resident and program parent Rosemary Marks, who has been fighting to save the program, is relieved, but says there is still a lot of work to do.
"The parent group is getting together to work out the necessary strategies to make the program succeed," she said.
