District 14 City Councilman Philip Kingston hosted a Twitter town hall yesterday where he took questions from his followers about next year’s budget. Kingston spent about an hour responding to questions and has said he will follow-up on some today.

He answered questions about DPD pay, the area’s senior population, bike lanes, Fair Park, and funding for local artists to name a few.

Here are some of the highlights from the evening:
