The LA County/City Annual Homeless Count was taken by LASHA last January 2020. June is the usual time of year to release the Report. LAHSA who conducts the Count has been under scrutiny by the LA City Council, which had a number of concerns,. Heidi Marston is their new Executive Director who replaced Peter Lynn last December after his five years with the organization. It was a quick departure when serious questions were asked about the validity of previous Homeless Counts by the LA Times regarding drug use.

    A vote for any Democrat, no matter how small the office, is a vote to move America towards global socialism. You can then kiss our hard fought for freedoms goodbye.

    I have one word to Garcetti. Taxation without protection is theft.

    They tout the figure of 20000 housed so far. Course they don’t know how many left the next day or may have been counted a dozen times. What a farce. Garcetti must go!
