    As all government figures are skewed, Venice has over 3000 homeless, nearly 10% of city population, this coming from people who never lived here, have no stake, only want to party, steal and terrorize tax paying Venetians

    According to Mike Bonin’s office, get used to it because “it is what it is” according to his district representative. They have no intention of doing anything at all. This is the most incompetent office and elected official in the United States.

      when can i vote for someone who will finally make it illegal to be sleeping in the streets of Venice? Many residents will happily pay a monthly fee to move Venice homeless somewhere else and keep them off our streets. I’m tired of having drugged up homeless yell obscenities in the middle of the night.
