Year Around Shelter for the Homeless Still "Under Consideration"

Hi Yupette.

The Arlington Yuppie Board again refused to commit to year-around housing for Arlington's growing homeless population at yesterday's CB meeting. Arlington's population has grown by about 22,000 (11%) over the past decade and many who were added to Arlington's population since 2000 are of households that are well under the poverty level. Meanwhile, funds will be stripped from essential services in the 2011 budget to fund the County Board's pet projects and pet special interests.

What do you expect from a bunch of f'ing Yuppies who want to gentrify out every person with and income of under $100,000 per year and every family with an income of $200,000 per year?

If I were afflicted with a serious and life threatening disease I would not go on in the way Barbara Favola does about maybe doing something about the homeless problem,I would use what remained of my life to do something to fix the homeless problem.

I heard from several Dems that Barbara has cancer that's in remission due to repeated chemotherapy.

In 2020 Arlington's 50-something Yups will be living in places like Bradenton FL. Think they really care anymore?

Catholic Diocese of Arlington threw an extravagant Catholic Charities Ball Saturday night. Where are these people when it comes to asking for more services for the homeless?

Since when has the County Board been concerned about housing for the middle class and working class, let alone for the homeless?

Where did Adrian Fenty copy his gentrification program for D.C.? From Arlington, Alexandria, and Falls Church.

Someone should tell Fenty that after 20 years of "resegregation through gentrification" Arlington still has big socioeconomic problems and still can't balance a budget without a substantial tax increase every year.

The Arlington Greens Newsletter is published and is available on www.arlingtongreens.org. It contains articles on the homeless situation, I-66 (and quotes the Yupette), and development and gentrification.
