September 12, 2019


A MOTION FAILS AND LET ME READ IT OFF. I GUESS MY COUNCIL MAN. MYSELF AND THE COUNSEL MAN AND COUNCIL MEMBERS ABSTAIN BY CHAVEZ. SO YOU KNOW THAT ORDINANCE FAILS. THE PROPOSED PAN HANDLER STOP AND NOTES TO PEDESTRIAN RECEIVING A LOT OF BACK LASH. AND COUNCIL MEMBERS VOTING IT DOWN. AND THEY HAVE A ORDINANCE AND WE BRING IN THE PANEL FOR THE WEEK. TAKE THE ROLLCALL. YOU MIGHT RECOGNIZE THEM. THE NEWLY ELECTED AND THAT IS A LOCOMOTIVE. – AND THIS IS AN ORDINANCE. AND YOU THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A CHAMPIONSHIPSHIP AND THAT IS ABSTAIN. ARE YOU SURPRISED WITH THE TURN OUT AND THE BACK LASH. AND STARTING WITH THE MAKING COMMENTS AND I WAS NOT SURPRISED. AND YOU ARE IN THAT ROOM WHEN IT IS GOING AND IT WAS A PACKED HOUSE AND COUNCIL CHAMBERS. ARE YOU LITTLE SURPRISED HOW IT GAINED SO OF ATTENTION SO AND THAT IS THEY HAD A PRESS CONFERENCE. AND SO I COMPLETELY FORGOT YOUR QUESTION. ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THE CITIZENS COMING IN. AND HEY, I HAVE BEEN HANDING OUT BOTTLE WATER SINCE I WAS FOUR YEARS OLD AND THIS IS JUST WRONG TO DO. SOMETHING IMMEDIATELY. AND IT IS BOTTLED WATER TO SOMEONE. AND IT IS AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD WHO IS SAYING. AND THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE DOING IT FOR. CHIEF GARY DIER SAID STATISTICS THAT WE CAN’T PROVE WHETHER IT ISOIR NOT. IT IS NOT JUST A SAFETY ISSUE, BUT A WRONG WAY TO HANDLE THINGS. AND THAT IS PUBLIC TELL. IF HE IS SITTING HE WOULD NOT BE RIGHT ISSUE BUT A MORAL TURPITUDE. WE ARE RELEASING THE PUBLIC’S GENEROSITY. WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME IF I CHOOSE TO GIVE MY MONEY. AND THAT IS LESS FORTUNATE AND THEY SHOULD BE CRIMINALIZED NEXT WEEK. AND THAT IS REACTION AND SUDDENLY TURNED THE OTHER WAY. AND THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. BUT GOOD HEARTED PEOPLE HERE TO DO THAT AND I WILL RESPOND TO THAT REAL QUICK. SO MANY PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO BELIEVE MY MOTIVES. THEY DON’T TRUST ME OR FEEL LIKE I AM HONEST WITH THEM, I GET THAT AND ERIC I NEVER WAS TRYING TO STOP SOMEBODY FROM GIVING A BOTTLE OF WATER OR A HAMBURGERO A $20 BILL. I DON’T WANT TO SEE THAT EXCHANGE TAKE PLACE IN TRAFFIC. THE IF SOMEONE WANTS TO GIVE OR CALLED TO GIVE. I WANT THEM TO PULL OVER AND FIND A SAFE PLACE AND OTHER PEOPLE THOUGHT I WOULD TRY TO STOP THAT ACTIVITY. I DON’T BELIEVE I WAS. BUT THAT WHOLE. LET ME ASK YOU THIS. I BELIEVE THIS IS IMPORTANT TO SAY. YOU ONLY HAVE A FEW MORE DAYS BEFORE THE BEFORE THE WITH THE MAYOR AND CHIEF AND HE WAS SUPPORTIVE AND HE LET ONE OF HIS OFFICERS TO GET OUT ON THE STREET AND MAKE COME BACK TO IT. NO, I THINK HOMELESSNESS. NO THE PAND HANDLING. NO, I THINK THEY SHOULD GO ON. I THINK THEY HAD TROUTFUL REMARKS. & SO LOOKING AT HOW THEY CAN DO YOU FEEL IT IS THE RIGHT TIME. HE HAD 18 MONTHS, BUT WHAT IS YOUR POSITION ON THAT? I AM NOT NECESSARILY SURE. I THINK IT WAS A DIFFICULT TIME BECAUSE RIGHT NOW THEY SLEETED TO ACCEPT THE HEAT MONEY AND THE MAYOR ALSO HAS HELLS SORT OF HIS VISION FOR ADDRESSING HOMELESSNESS WITH THE TRIAGE CENTER AND WORKING AND MAYBE NOT
