To Whom It Might concern!
I will say if some one is getting $700.00 a month to live on in California
they are getting about $140.00 more a month to live on than I do,but I am in
agreement that safe camping zones are needed,especially some that are in an
area where hospitals are accessible in case of injury or accidents!
Perhaps telephones and port-a-johns and if possible a pay shower?
Maybe this could be policed by homeless them selves?
