In LA, Mayor Garcetti has said that he will invest 100 million dollars to end homelessness. Regardless of him wanting pretty streets should LA host the Olympics, I want you to decide who should get housing first. In other words, who should have first priority, when the vouchers are handed out.

3. A lot of dialogue in LA regarding those who are not sober, think that if you are an alcoholic or a drug user, you should first go through rehab, thus making housing a reward for their sobriety. Do you agree?

Those that need it should enter rehab

I do see housing as a reward for getting sober, a clause for keeping housing

4. There are those, heard from a friend of mine, that are offered housing, even housed, but return to the streets because of several reasons: not wanting the responsibility, too used to living on the street,etc. Should it be mandatory that they are housed, and if not arrested and or fined?

5. I am not the expert here, but have heard that when President Reagan was in office, he ended funding that closed down a lot of mental institutions; thus leaving those mentally ill to be homeless. This week a man beat another man up for giving him food. Should those that are mentally ill and homeless, and dangerous be institutionalized in a mental facility or jailed, but kept in the criminally ill section?

Mental hospital or the like
