    A sad situation all around made worse by red tape and politicking on this situation.

    I get that being homeless is not a crime nor is it, for the most part, a matter of choice. However, what is humane about allowing the homeless to set up a permanent city inside a parking structure? It is not hard to predict the many negative consequences that will occur and ultimately lead to the razing of the
    entire structure.

    Your headline intentionally mislead the reading public. County Executives are not the reason the Annex won’t come on line for three months; it is the fault of the Federal Transit Administration.I would be less critical if you just presented the facts instead of always attempting to burn some elected official.

    If Muir is so concerned about the homeless she should have diverted a portion of that big fat salary increase for her unions workers to help the homeless. Muir is long on talk, short on action. Berardino pulled down in the neighborhood of $300,000. How much does she make? How much does she give to the homeless? heh. Do a story on that!

    I know that I will sound cynical. In my view, the County BOS could care less about County of Orange employees and use a disturbing amount of zeal and nasty moves to destroy any employee who dares to bring wrongdoing to the attention of those charged with ensuring that ethics, policy, procedure and the law are followed. So….with that as a benchmark it’s pretty clear how much care and concern they really want to devote to the homeless. Not much.

    Norberto, check out the Empowerment Plan. A young woman hires only the homeless, and they make these incredible self heating coats that convert into a sleeping bag, or to a shoulder tote bag when not in use. They distribute them free, to those in need. We don’t need those laggers on the BoS, or worse, the idiot “leadership” *eyeroll* at SSA. We need innovators like Veronica, who are really making visible changes, giving the homeless warmth and a job training, with a paycheck. THAT is how change is made. The Gang o’Five could learn something from that young woman.
