Letter submitted by Orangevale resident Roger Jackson–
[RE: Here’s what the 2019 homeless count in Citrus Heights found; July 7th] I am very angry that you have Councilman Bret Daniels as one of your community leaders. What he said regarding the homeless, to “get those idiots out of here,” is very disrespectful.
He needs to go homeless for a while and then see what he has to say. There are many reasons for homelessness. We know all the reasons. What we don’t know is the solution.
It requires money and paid-for services, not demeaning our citizens any further. We need to not criminalize them, but to grab them by the hand and offer what we want to.
What we can do: obviously housing, food, medical, sanitation are just a few. Come on, there is a solution to this problem.
