BOO: Homeless talks

March 19, 2013 

Confusion exists among South Sound jurisdictions over who should lead our community’s response to homelessness. The recent joint meetings between Olympia City Council and the Thurston County Commission seem to produce only talk about what to talk about.

A long-term and coordinated strategy with an identified funding source, spelling out the responsibilities of each jurisdiction, include Lacey and Tumwater, could be a winner.

But that would require the jurisdictions to do more than just talk.

Bellingham Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
