"No Mas": Eliminate red tape for developers & other waste

Rawlings touched on the budget, saying, "You have to look at waste and find a way to cut it out." Rawlings also said the city needs to eliminate the red tape for developers. "We don't have to get a big fund," he said. "We just have to get the paperwork through." When asked about the upcoming redistricting of council seats, Rawlings issued what has become his catch phrase while urging residents to be involved and vocal in the process." Are you gonna walk down to City Hall and say, 'No Mas?'" he said.
