At Timberlane Deliberative on Thursday night, supporters of the administration insisted that the body invest one hour in order to prevent my ten minute presentation. The moderator had previously agreed to give me 15 minutes to make a presentation on the budget. Twenty-six hours before deliberative, I received notification to cut this to 10 minutes. Due to an orchestrated motion from the floor, I was ultimately allowed 3 minutes, which I had to respond to on the fly.
Here is the 10-minute presentation – my speaking notes interspersed with the slides I had prepared.
