January 30, 2017

On Wednesday evening 7-8:30pm, February 15th, the Anaheim Republican Assembly will hold a public forum for residents of Anaheim, Orange and Villa Park. This will address the homelessness crisis. The event will be held at the Phoenix Club, 1340 S. Sanderson Ave., Anaheim, CA 92806.

Speakers at the forum will include Tim Houchen with Hope 4 Restoration, Lou Noble a homeless advocate, Kristine Ridge the assistant City Manager, and Lt. Craig Friesen, Anaheim Police Department. Questions will be allowed from the audience.

With 28,000 homeless in just Anaheim alone, it is thought that this discussion and search for solutions is very timely. The number of homeless has increased by 10,000 since 2014. Naturally the problem is much worse in other parts of Orange County.

The general public is invited as well.

    Where did this person get these crazy figures “With 28,000 homeless in just Anaheim alone” (Anaheim pop. 345,000)?

    Put your thinking caps on people, that would be 7.5% of the population, that would be a riot-inducing number.

    The real figure based on 2015 numbers is about 16,000 countywide, yes, countywide out of 3 million people.

    Our homeless problem is serious and horrible, but exaggerating the numbers is not helpful.

    “With 28,000 homeless in just Anaheim alone, it is thought that this
    discussion and search for solutions is very timely. The number of
    homeless has increased by 10,000 since 2014.”

    Good God.

    And the County Supervisor’s piled on by building a 200-bed County homeless shelter on Kraemer Place which will attract more permanent homeless residents?

    HA!

    Anaheim – with friends like that who needs enemies?

    Excellent! I needed someplace to pass out flyers about Spritzer.
