  1. Where will you put this supposed community housing development? You do realize that a majority of homeless people are homeless because they have addiction issues or mental health issues that they refuse to take their meds for. A lot of them become violent and will prey on those around them. I’m sure it will be put somewhere near a lower class neighborhood because those people won’t have the funds to fight it. They will have to deal with finding people stealing there stuff, breaking into their cars and raping and killing their neighbors..homelessness is not something you can throw a million dollars at and solve it..I urge any politician that supports this to show their support by putting it in their own neighborhood..put your money where your mouth is…

  2. They should look at the excellent model put into effect by the wife of Bill De Blasio (ex-mayor of New York). She took $900 million dollars and….well, I’m not sure what she did with the money, but the money got spent on SOMETHING at least. They may not be able to round up $900 million but at least a couple of million. Just think of all the houses and cars they can buy for themselves before venturing out to help the homeless.
