Joe Finn, president and executive director of the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance, is not happy with Newton Mayor Setti Warren’s decision to put the kibosh on the Engine 6 housing process for previously homeless individuals. In his blog and in an email, he questions Warren’s logic and suggests that the decision was political. This is definitely worth reading.
Here’s an excerpt that stands out:
How many homeless men or women will die in shelter or on the streets while he tries to formulate the ‘smart and sensible way’ toward just housing for the poor?
I may be naïve, but I yearn for the likes of Mayor Mann who knew that at times things have to be done simply because they are the right thing to do.
