Supervisors Matt Haney, Shamann Walton, Hillary Ronen, and Dean Preston announced legislation on Thursday intended to counter the city’s plan to move 500 homeless people out of shelter-in-place hotel rooms by the end of December.
Here is a an excerpt:
“[The plan] is reckless, poorly thought out, and unfairly played with people’s lives at a time when people need us to be looking out for them,” said Supervisor Dean Preston. “This is the worst possible time to be removing opportunities for people to be off the streets. We should be looking for opportunities to expand it, not wind it down.”
