File this one under "no good deed goes unpunished" as Mayor Q spent a great deal of time & (taxpayer) money helping the homeless only to earn their inevitable rebuke.
Here's the word . . .
HOMELESS ACTIVISTS REBUKE MAYOR Q NOW THAT THEIR TINY HOMES CONFRONT FAIL AND NEIGHBORHOOD SENTIMENT HAS TURNED AGAINST THEIR CAUSE!!!
A message sent our way . . .
"The Mayor & council have chosen to "bench" the proposed Verge pallet house community resolution. We are sorely disappointed and feel that the city is failing to take the needs of the homeless seriously . . . Obviously the mayor doesn't have time for us anymore and his office is no longer responding to our demands. His "commitment" to our cause was paper thin . . . We feel betrayed."
To be fair, this note was from outside the so-called "homeless collective" who remain committed to working with 12th & Oak.
However . . . The fact is that TINY HOMELESS HOUSES are D.O.A. and there is very little political will to move the idea forward.
