Here's a budget idea... $301 Million taxpayer dollars are spent each year on this county's Section 8Read More housing. Get that ? $301 million every year on ONE county in California. We taxpayers are paying about $1200 per month for about 18,000 households in Santa Clara county. When do we say ENOUGH? People should be ashamed that they are on welfare, instead they appear proud that they're getting something from the government. Well, taxpayers, it's not government's money...it's yours. Let's publish the names and addresses of these people as well as the length of time each have been living off of handouts. Maybe then we would all open our eyes.

What do you have against poor people? Might I remind you that we live in an equal society! I wonderRead More if there is some way we could take that money and build out Vansona Park with high density housing, agenda 21 style, stack recycled shipping container homes three high. We could make it a bicycle only community. Los Gatos would be a showcase for the whole world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoDY8ce_3zk Please help the poor people. I am going to upload some pics of shipping container homes.

What's interesting is this: "The average chronically homeless person uses $60,000 of publicRead More services annually (hospitals, jails, mental health, public assistance) but once housed, that number goes down to $16,000. This is why Santa Clara County has a new program to focus on housing first. Homelessness is a complex issue but by working together, we are making progress." I've been on the Sixth District PTA executive board (www.capta6.org) so I track what is spent on school children per year. It's wild how much a prisoner or homeless person costs the gov't per year versus what we spend on a child in school per year. So that's $60,000/year for a homeless person versus around $9,000 for a child in school. It would be nice to get the $60K down and the $9K up! Thanks for thinking about innovative solutions to this problem.
