Hickenlooper and homelessness
“Governor debuts e≠orts to battle homelessness with taxes on pot,” Nov. 27 news story.
From your article about Gov. John Hickenlooper’s plan for state spending on homelessness:
“Soon after being elected mayor in 2003, Hickenlooper created a commission to study the issue and embraced a 10-year plan to end homelessness.”
“Colorado saw a 6 percent increase in homelessness in 2016, which ranks as the seventhlargest in the nation ... ““‘I’m doubling down,’ Hickenlooper said.” This is a prime example of why failed government programs continue to grow. Perhaps it is time to admit that government is particularly inept at compassion.
