You need only act if you want to see the City of Savannah’s renewed focus on supporting the arts and culture community, which contributes so much to our community’s fabric, tourism, and economic development.
Contact the Mayor, at-large Council Members, your Council Member, and the City Manager to communicate your support and encourage them to consider the feedback the Arts and Culture Alliance of Chatham County shared with them on December 8, 2023.
The timing of this communication is timely.
Starting at 2 p.m., December 8, 2023, is the last meeting soliciting public feedback on the 2023 City of Savannah budget.
With recent discussions and the published budget, a determination was needed first to observe whether our elected leaders would be proactive in their approach or if we needed to be reactive.

Subject: Invest in Arts and Culture For A Better Savannah
I write you as an elected leader of the City of Savannah, providing the leadership to help govern our great City.
Recently, you received a communication from Patrick Kelsey with the Arts and Culture Alliance of Chatham County.
Briefly, I want to communicate that I support what was shared with you and ask that you consider the budget changes proposed.
As an elected official representing the City of Savannah residents, I hope you find a renewed focus toward supporting the arts and culture community, which contributes so much to our community’s fabric, tourism, and economic development.ACACC-2023-City-Council-Budget-Feedback
