Mayor Nutter delivers budget address to tough crowd as DC33 rallies from the rafters (PHOTOS AND VIDEO)

Mayor Michael Nutter delivered his annual proposed budget addressed to a
tough crowd this afternoon. The balconies of City Council were packed
with workers from AFSCME’s District Council 33, the city’s largest union
of municipal workers. DC33 has been locked in a battle with the
administration over a contract for three years.

Nutter entered the chambers to boos, stomping and chants of “Keep your
word!”. Similar outbursts regularly interrupted his speech, at times
drowning him out. (AW)
