This is a community of people who lack support services and whose presents in many cases create negative effects in the community. This lack of services and growing negative impacts need to be addressed in a more systematic and humanistic way by city staff. I intend to get the City of Chula Vista to act through a new set of programs and the establishment of a dedicated full-time administrator who will be accountable to the City Manager for handling homelessness in Chula Vista.
No new funding will be necessary for this new approach. We need to use the resources we already dedicate more efficiently.
