This week the MHNews contained an article speaking to the achievement of “functionally zero” for homelessness. That is amazing. Within the article, our mayor is quoted as saying “… because some people see ‘undesirables’ and assume they are homeless,” in regards to the homeless population. Using the term “undesirables” is callous, heartless and adds to the stigma some people in our community deal with on a day to day basis. I am appalled at this comment and believe our “leader” owes citizens of this city an apology.
