Item 11- RV temporary housing permits residential driveways is importing homelessness into suburbs, an inexpensive substitute for a supervised, policed, navigation center that Pacifica cannot afford or get support for. Host RV permitted residential sites will become eviction proof.

Remember that 2 of the district 4 city council candidates, Tigerjazz and Marj Davis, are on the Pacifica resource center board and helped come up with the unpopular RV plan. The 3rd candidate, Mike Cohen, is an independent thinker and is running to actually represent the people in his district.

Is the third candidate like the third rail on the subway? Avoid contact at all cost? Independent thinker my ass ! I'm glad you said "plan" and not "ban". Tomato, tomato ? like brainwash or influence. Don't think he's lived here long enough to know.
