Don't believe the voting habits of the homeless (or the lack thereof) is a major concern in the discussion.
The bigger focus is some of the homeless policy adopted by the Austin City Council. And whether the new (more lenient) rules are making the city even more attractive to those folks. Camping on the sidewalks and panhandling restrictions have been removed/lessened...to the displeasure of police and many local residents.
No solutions in sight as Dallas' homeless problem continues to grow
Sad but true. A once proud state reduced to the sorry company of California.
Let us commiserate.
As the number of people sleeping outside on Dallas city streets has skyrocketed, the city's search for a location to house the homeless appears to be at a standstill.
