8 Votes for State of Emergency on Homelessness

April 4, 2016

By Tim Redmond : 48hills – excerpt

There are at least eight votes to declare a state of emergency on homelessness in San Francisco, so the measure by Sup. David Campos will pass when it comes to the full board Tuesday/5. That means the mayor, who doesn’t like the idea (mostly, I suspect, because it’s an admission that his housing policy is a failure), can’t get away with a veto.

The interesting question: Who’s going to vote against it?

So far the only supes who are not co-sponsors are Wiener, Mark Farrell, and Katy Tang. Will Wiener vote No, the day before he debates Kim in a forum where housing and homelessness are going to be among the top issues?… (more)

When the question comes up on how to finance the homeless solution, some people are already saying, take the money out of the SFMTA budget.
