Mayor Pat (DaggerDan) McGrady is quoted in the Aegis/Sun March 31 , 2017 :If they cant live in a tent, then they’ll do something else. We hope they take advantage of the VOLUMINOUS OPPORTUNITIES THEY HAVE.”
That was McGradys quoted support for his idiotic ordinance. In english that means : “If we make living in a tent illegal it will force you to either die, move out of city limits, force you into crime or maybe you’ll find something else.”
Anyone, let alone an elected public servant, who would suggest a daily public fine on a homeless person for dwelling in a tent is dangerously disturbed and grossly inhumane. In fact I suggest the Mayor is one of the causes of the homeless. The Mayor brags as a rental landlord, that he refuses as a heartless libertarian to take Section 8 vouchers that subsidize low-income persons seeking a regular dwelling.
Thats not a “voluminous opportunity” ,that’s a voluminous roadblock.
The Mayor should take the advice of great Rev. Sidney Chambers who once said : ” A community only works if we look after one another. It is our responsibility to look after each other.”
