    With “partner” Cities DEFINITELY hooked for $500K EACH, WHY has NOBODY asked for even an ESTIMATE of what the COUNTY will contribute (besides a nameplate)? Absent from the Staff report, (Of Course) no discussion besides grandstanding from Anaheim’s Math-ILLiterates on the dias. Pandemic brain rot in CA presents ONLY ‘Yes-No” decisions in public, with no public discussions of alternatives, and little if any evidence in Staff reports that any were considered or on WHAT BASIS. Can V of OC find out?

      Everything else, of course. Cost is no object since it’s not their money and their only interest in the homeless is 1) get ’em out of the Civic center; and 2) be seen to be addressing the issue to milk that Murray compassion for all it’s worth.

        Well, does ANYBODY have the SLIGHTEST CLUE what “Everything ELSE”– IS?? It’s NEVER any object to those who are SPENDING IT, and I guess those who will be (Tax)PAYING FOR IT have little interest, either! (And we haven’t even GOT to the OPERATING COSTS!) Personally, I think it’s time to quietly step away from the gaming table/ stage. Does Kabuki Theater always end with killing the audience?

          I doubt it.

          But the spotlight will shine bright on those whose charity and compassion are paid for (and who cares if it’s wasted – it’s the thought that counts, right) with somebody else’s money.

    “It’s important for everybody to realize that compassion is not just an
    expression of sympathy,” Murray said. “We have an opportunity to act
    with genuine compassion tonight.”

    What a load of road apples. Murray et al. rousted the homeless out of La Palma Park and the City quickly built a dog park on the site to make sure they didn’t wander back (oops! no place to park – woof!).

    Adam, please be sure ask Murray how come she bought a multimillion dollar property just last summer on the old Karcher property that was supposed to be for a homeless shelter. So what now becomes of this tasty morsel once the zoning is conveniently changed?
