#KevinFaulconer office flails as #HepatitisA crisis continues to ravage #SanDiego

Weeks before the international media descended on a deadly hepatitis A outbreak linked to San Diego’s swelling homeless population, the city claimed it didn’t have a suitable spot to shelter the unsheltered.

Craig Gustafson, a spokesman for Mayor Kevin Faulconer, in July told The San Diego Union-Tribune that the city didn’t own a property that came without “serious challenges, whether they be logistical or financial” to hosting homeless services.

Four months and a dozen hepatitis deaths later, suddenly officials found they had at least two properties suitable for those purposes — a pair of parking lots now being used as a homeless tent camp and a safe parking zone.

The parcels were among fewer than two dozen city-owned lots officials previously vetted as potentially compatible for long-sought homeless facilities over the past year.

  1. Maybe jerry who is responsible for the homesless epidemic could cough up some of his billions in TAX money to help his state out.. But the Choo-Choo train to no where is more important than a deadly epidemic in his state.
