>> Hi Cory,
>> Your answer to me back in October 2014 ( see below) re the scope of and possible solutions to the homelessness crisis is equally relevant today. Keep up your good works and ongoing advocacy for those on the margins.

>>> Hi Aram,
>>> As you know, my concern for how Palo Alto cares for our homeless population was a key motivation for my decision to run for the City Council. I was appalled by the vote of the City Council last year to ban vehicle habitation in all places at all times throughout Palo Alto. It was a morally reprehensible and irresponsible decision. If someone's only roof is the roof of their car, calling them a criminal is unjustifiably callous.
>>> At least one new homeless shelter in northern Santa Clara County is needed, and possibly multiple ones. The City of Palo Alto should be leaders in making sure every resident in our community has a safe place to sleep.
>>> In the long-run, Palo Alto should also push the county and the state to adopt a housing-first policy. A safe place to sleep for the night is important, but people need stable homes. For moral and fiscal reasons, providing housing is the right thing to do. Palo Altans are reluctant to do this independently, for fear of becoming a magnet, so we should at the least be the leading voice in the region for housing our entire population.
>>> Best,
>>> Cory Wolbach

>>>> Hi Palo Alto City Council candidates:
>>>> Here is your chance to offer your views ( see comment section at the bottom of the article) re whether Palo Alto should build a state of the art homeless shelter. I look forward to your comments. Once I see that all of you who wish, have weighed in on the topic, I will pass them on to the local press and other interested parties.
