These people are a victim of their own choices. I can’t go a quarter mile without seeing multiple help wanted signs.
They’re a burden on society when tax dollars are funneled into programs aimed at helping them.

Teach them to fish, don’t expect to breastfeed them into productivity.

You nailed it… Homeless is the wrong adjective to use with these drug addicts, drunks, miscreants and criminals… They are vagrants that have conveniently been mislabeled by the left… California is numero uno when it comes to doling out benefits and tax payer money, so here they are. If you build it, they will come…The only way to reverse this race to the ethical and moral bottom pushed by the left is a change in Sacramento.

If labor can not afford rent here many of them will move and get a job somewhere else.

If you think it’s bad here you should see Fort Bragg’s predicament. Full of millionaires now, no one else can afford to move there and all the help is moving out. That whole area has a hard time getting a volunteer fire dept too- most of the young people who grew up there have moved out. The new residents will have to clean their own friggin toilets now.

Sure help wanted, so are living wages. A labor strike like we have never seen is looming.

Time for workers to get a fair share of the profits they generate.

I certainly hope he will address what is causing this crisis. Mainly drugs and enablers. We will never build enough homes for the homeless as long as we allow poison to be sold to our children.
For every person you put in a home, one or more will hit the street to take their place in a living hell as the result of drug use. Mainly p2p Meth.
Politicians are greedily generating industries and spending billions of dollars centered around “solving the homeless crisis” while they encourage our youth to be turned into psychotic zombies.
We need leaders with backbone and morals to bring it under control, not the self serving, lowlife, opportunistic narcissists that presently run this state and many others.
The Devil is going to win this one, as reflected by our latest elections.

If people earned wages that allowed for self respect, not so many would be escaping reality with drugs.

Crazy thought: what if they included some homeless people in the discussion?

The vagrants will only demand more freebies and benefit to support their free ride on us sheeple.

They’d have to wear masks. Non-starter.

Well, it’s certainly a big help if they can impliment all of it. Thanks Mike for working on this.

But, it’s not a solution without limiting large global and foreign investors from purchasing huge amounts of statewide California residential RE and raising rents to benefit their stock holders OR converting them into vacation rentals. IF they decide to rent them at all rather than leaving them empty and rotting..

Other countries limit or don’t allow foreigners to invest in their housing stock in order to protect their own citizens. Think; China, Mexico, Russia, Austrailia, New Zealand, Mongolia, Costa Rica etc etc. Securing a country’s housing stock for it’s own citizens is not a radical idea by any means.

Especially as the US dollar looses value worldwide.. Global vulture ventures are ready to descend on our housing even more, as they have for the past decade or so..

Only permanent residents of a county should be able to purchase property there.

We need to end rent for profit. No more landlords with dozens of homes.

No more rent for profit? Do you really think somebody is going to buy property, build a house, go through the regulation process which makes up 40 to 60% of the cost to build a new house only to rent it to you for free?
