News Roundup

In the news …

From yesterday’s Daily News, a story on a proposed rezoning in Norwood and plans for a homeless facility operated by the Doe Fund.

The Mayor and Speaker announced a new proposal for a bill limiting campaign donations, intended to rein in “pay for play” contributions . The Post explains that the bill would limit contributions for people with city contracts, franchises or grants worth more than $100,000 - as well as registered lobbyists - to $400 for candidates for citywide offices, a sharp decrease from the $4,950 previously allowed. The Times covered it, too.

In today's Daily News, Carrie Melago reports on the crisis caused by more stringent rules for admission to the city’s homeless shelters. Because families are shuffled between boroughs, kids are unable to attend school consistently.

  1. The dept. of Homeless Services is so mismanaged, that I'm convinced they want to make people homeless.

    I know of so many stories of people, who've been evicted and have gone in week after week for help, but have not received any.

    I have a great solution for homelessness, especially for poor family. There are so many buildings that need to be fixed up, that you can create a community of ex-homeless people. They would learn to fix the building, which would give them a great deal of pride plus the skills.

    There could be funding from major corporations that could have businesses created on the first floor. The adults in that building could work for these businesses. If they feel they could make more money, they can find new jobs while keeping their place of residence.

    The goal is self-sufficiency and feeling good about one's self, plus improving the neighborhood, and ultimately getting rid of homelessness.
