It is time for us to do our own outreach and buy them bus tickets to San Francisco so they can get the drugs and housing they need. One fellow said he would post money for the first 10 tickets. Venice Update will contribute.

We saw this coming! Now Mayor Garcetti’s Bridge Shelters have COVID 19. This was one of my major concerns voiced back in Oct 2018 at the Venice Town Hall that these bed cubicles could spread contagious diseases far easier than these individual canvas tents I’ve been promoting for years now! https://www.nbclosangeles.com/investigations/coronavirus-spreads-to-most-skid-row-homeless-shelters-despite-efforts-to-stop-it/2360838/?fbclid=IwAR0wa6rIdP1XArd9lwT1CBpnc7IwQ9eRvEo8h8XAxorYpuYl725XLlJhev8

    ATTENTION SIDEWALK CAMPERS! If you are Homeless on 3rd Ave, Hampton Dr., 4th, Rose Ave and Penmar take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity and move your tent now to an under pass or near a freeway exit or entrance! The city will move you to a hotel and it just might be the Ritz! Who knows but you will get 3 meals a day and a roof over your head. You have nothing to lose! Pass out flyers and tell your camper friends the city has until this Friday to do this!

      This city homeless response was to spend the 1.4 billion in a manner that would benefit their future careers not the campers
      Now the city has squandered the money, business revenue in the toilet, can’t raise real estate taxes, Trump won’t bail them out, pension expenses soaring——oh what a lovely day!!! LA voters you elected 16 clones of Nero!!!

    Garcetti and Newsom are China’s best friends. Newsom sent a billion dollars to China for 5 million masks Your tax dollars at work to get China’s economy back on track.

    Garcetti and Newsom are holding out keeping us locked up in hopes for another $trillion stimulous bill so Pelosi can sneak in funds to bail out their failed and bankrupt pension funds. There is no science behind their lockdown. The lockdown was to give hospitals time to prepare for the pandemic. The numbers arent even close to the experts predictions.

    Bonin arguably the most hated Councilmember in the city ignores the fact the city owns 1000’s of vacant properties,real homes not rooms that could be used for this but he would rather turn these fancy hotels into Hobo Hiltons. From tent campgrounds, million dollar beach condos , 6 million dollar bridge shelters, predatory buyouts of mom and pop properties and now $500/night hotel rooms Bonin is all over the board without a real vision while waisting millions of taxpayers money! He has slowed down any effort to get these folks off our sidewalks! You’ve seen his failures in Venice at his Bridge Shelter now he wants to destroy the DTLA Ritz!

      We as taxpayers need to file complaints with the FBI so they will open an investigation into his actions. Bonin has nothing to do with the homeless. He is taking advantage of Covid 19 to make a land grab.
