Homelessness

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of reading reports of police being sent to bust up homeless camps and relocating them, so city dwellers don't have to look at them. Homelessness is a symptom of failed social policy. Hiding them does nothing to fix the problem. The homeless should be visible. They have a right to exist. They should not be persecuted just because they are down on their luck.

If elected, I will fight to repeal all legislation used to persecute the homeless. Putting our defenseless and most vulnerable people in prison isn't a real solution. I will remove regulations that tie the hands of volunteer organizations that wish to help the homeless.
