  1. What a joke! Self-serving Politicians such as Leggett who have probably done more to create conditions for homelessness now draft a piece of paper that gives lip service to homelessness.

    1. Sorry, but the County Executive has made affordable housing a priority over the past 8 years, preserving or creating 15,000 affordable units with more on the way. The County has also invested in services to reach out to the homeless with food, shelter, and programs to help them deal. Last year homelessness went down in the County about 14 percent.
