Homeless haven?

EDITOR:

How bout we move all the homeless into the homes of our politicians? I’ve just discovered theyre moving them all into my backyard. I have lost what little confidence I had for my local politicians…

The homeless issue on the east end of Placerville has been getting progressively worse for the last few years; no sidewalks, rising petty thefts, homeless on Broadway at all hours … I will vote against all incumbents on the next election.

Disgusted in Hangtown,

JEREMY BATDORF
Placerville

    I love the part that only EDC homeless can use the camp. Homeless is Homeless. Where ever a homeless person is is where they live. So any Sac homeless that make their way to Placerville are now Placerville homeless and can live in the camp. Aint that great?

    It's offical Placerville City Council are nuts, give the x mayor a job overseeing construction and developing a homeless camp all in the same breath. To think that they have a brain is far beyond what anyone could understand, wonder why the city is in the mess it's in attend a meeting and see why.

    I don`t even shop on Broadway anymore because of the homeless population. Maybe we should just give Broadway and all points east to the homeless and let them destroy it all. Next thing will be used car lots, more prostitutes, and bailbondsmen, The next Stockton!

    Jon, you left out the massage parlors and card rooms.

    Worst case scenario? A used car dealer that is a bail bondsman who has prostitutes that perform massages poorly on the poor card playing patrons. Only thing I see wrong is the bail bondsman. I'm excited about tractor supply hardware coming to town.
