Governor Mitt Romney and the homeless

 


 

Quotes from Governor Mitt Romney on Homelessness

 

“State government’s current system of coordinating homeless services is best described as a patchwork approach to the problem,” said Romney. He added, “The responsibility for administering the systems and programs that address homeless families and individuals is scattered throughout state government. There is an insufficient level of coordination resulting in a rising number of homeless people slipping through the cracks. We can do better.” Source: 02-14-2003 Press Release

Debate about Governor Mitt Romney and Homelessness

 

Mitt Romney has a good position on homelessness.

Reasons to agree:

  1. He argues for Efficiency in the social service departments that handle homelessness.

 

My brother is homeless, and so this means a little more to me. I do not feel clear on the issue, and am just as perplexed by the issue as everyone else.
