I am excited to see the City address the issue of Homelessness head on, strategically, and with such purpose. I particularly agree with the emphasis and implementation of "Housing First." Of course, my biggest concern for this is where the funding will come from for such a large endeavor, and also ensuring that citizens are aware of the importance of such an initiative. Education for the public to have a better understanding of homelessness, it's causes, the many faces (it can happen to anyone!), and hope to resolve it will be what can help to make this plan work!

Stop giving $10.2 million to connected developers. Stop financing Arenas, parking garages and field houses that we don't need, can't afford and will ultimately rob the City Treasury of tax revenues. Stop the bait and switch of raising tax rates for one stated objective, then using the proceeds for something else. Stop building Taj Mahals animal shelters and homeless facilities when functional and adequate are what we need. Stop all of it. Start with good basic government services. The Homeless will always be with us and we should respond and help them. Your plan to "End Homelessness" is based on the impossible, so stop the deception.
