Feeding the homeless
My last letter stated that the city leadership doesn’t want homeless people in downtown Little Rock or even city parks. It scares away our citizens and puts forth a bad image to our tourist-conventioneers, and clients of real estate developers trying to sell condos in downtown Little Rock. Of course, they were not willing to admit that for fear of appearing heartless.
So a committee was formed to “study this problem.” The predicable result: Ask the city for a tent and transportation to a location far removed from the shadow of downtown. So the bottom line is the developers, Convention and Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, and the mayor get what they want and we taxpayers pay for it.
And you wonder what is wrong with this city?
