The Right Stuff: Pros of tiny shelters to help homeless in Vacaville
Solano County cities, specifically Vallejo, Fairfield, Suisun City and Vacaville, each have their own homeless problems. These people may be destitute, jobless or mentally challenged. While the rest of the population would like to see them disappear, simply asking them to leave for other areas of the state does not solve the problem.
Counties are obligated to serve the homeless for health and social services, but not housing. However, homeless presence creates significant financial and moral costs.!
The Right Stuff: Give credit where credit due
A recent letter to the editor from “Progressive” Democrat Solano County Supervisor Monica Brown concerning her vote on an Association of Bay Area Governments tax is something I agree with. What? Yeah, but there’s a catch.
Brown voted against a regional housing compact titled CASA supported by the Association of Bay Area Governments, a subset of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, on whose executive board she serves. Brown asserts she could not support a tax where Solano County gets no benefit. She sited Solano County’s 70 percent vote against Regional Measure 3 that raised bridge tolls. Political cover? Yeah, certainly!
