Helping the Homeless
I don't want to see homeless encampments - they are unsafe, potentially dirty and disease ridden.
Nor do I want to see us not serving our homeless.
years ago when they were dismantling Moffett Field I suggested that they use the existing military housing for homeless - they could house, train, offer medical, etc. at almost no cost. The answer: It was too far away from downtown (20 minutes at most). What happened to buses?
at another time I suggested that they build a floor of the new garage (across from our county building and the police station) as a place for homeless - beds, showers, food, etc. That didn't fly either.
So what are we to do? Pretend they don't exist? Pretend they don't need our help?
