Last week, we posted the list of “member items” sponsored by District 1’s Margaret Chin in the City Council’s 2011 discretionary budget. Today we’re returning to the budget beat — detailing some other projects Chin helped to sponsor in her first year on the Council. Listed after the jump are items from the so-called “speaker’s list.” In some cases, Chin was the single co-sponsor. In other instances, there were several Council co-sponsors. We’re not including items from a much larger list of funding choices sponsored by groups she is a part of, such as the Women’s Caucus and the Black, Latino and Asian Caucus.The descriptions following each program are taken directly from the City Council budget database. As reported last week, Chin’s member items total $364,464. There’s another $2.075,000 in expenditures on the Chin/Speaker’s List, bringing her grand total to $2,439,464.
