Sheriff Brown has made sure that Tona Wakefield continues to work with the mentally ill homeless. ("Jail Discharge Planner Honored in Sacramento: Tona Wakefield Recognized for her Work with Inmates" http://www.independent.com/news/2013/...). Sure there's more to do. But I'd put my vote on Sheriff Brown to get it done.

It seems like Mayor Schneider and city staff were standing up for the people of Santa Barbara. Of course a politician from Solvang wouldn't care about more traffic in our city. But I would have thought Supervisor Wolf and Carbajal would have been more thoughtful. They represent us too.

Crumbster, I voted for Measure A and I voted for more than just a wider freeway.

What? Ventura paid nothng? The point of the widening is to accommodate Ventura commuters. This looks like a bad deal for Santa Barbara residents.

He was actually really lucky to even get a Section 8 Voucher. Almost no one is getting them right now because of the Federal Sequestration. And there are funds available for first months rent and deposits. It's a tragedy. But he had a lot more opportunities than a lot of people out their. He seems angry. And I can understand that. But it could have been worse and is for a lot of people.

I was there and it didn't look like 100 people to me. I wish her luck but I don't see her succeeding this year.

I was there. Most of the people who were at the Planning Commission were supporting the shelter. You could tell by the purple ribbons and stickers they were wearing. We all want to see less homeless. But the way to do that is to get people in touch with the mental health, public health and social services they need. Getting rid of the shelter won't help the neighbors. Outreach teams to bring people inside would help.

You can't say Chic-Fil-A has been denied "due process." No doubt they 1. have a right to appeal/have their review and 2. will be successful. That sounds like process to me. Also, abstaining isn't the same as voting "no." I wish there had been a third option to this poll: "The ABR’s abstention from voting on Chick-fil-A’s project was a laudable gesture but they are not appointed to be making such gestures."

It is very frightening for people on fixed income to receive this type of notice. A friend of mine went through this and was very worried she would become homeless. With the stress her mental health declined. I was there to help her find a new place but it wasn't easy. She doesn't have a car and I don't know how she would have done it on her own.

@Validated, The Mayor has said that the initiatives apply to future contracts. By the way public school teachers are required to pay their full employee contribution. So I am guessing these initiatives will standup in court.
