According to CBS SF BAYArea, “All three properties have one thing in common. They’re big and have multiple units, but many of those units are currently occupied by tenants.”
“I’m sure the tenants have been asked to leave,” Allen Thomas commented. He lives close to one of the three properties, 811 Davis Street in Santa Rosa.
Neighbors said it’s a bad idea to evict renters to house the homeless.
“It’s just insanity,” declared Karen Sanders, who also resides in Santa Rosa.
Sonoma County leaders have plans on buying two properties in Santa Rosa and one in Cotati. They are expected to pay approximately one million dollars for each property. One county worker noted that they’re already contracted to buy property on Davis Street.
“Million dollar homes; million dollar homes for these transients living on the trail,” Sanders stated.
The county wants to clear the Joe Rodota Trail of the homeless. Many neighbors where those three properties are located worry that the new neighbors could potentially make the neighborhoods less safe and reduce the overall quality of life.
“I’m not NIMBY, but we’ve done enough,” declared Sher Ennis, a neighbor who lives close the Davis street property.
Davis claims a man from a re-entry housing program attacked her home a few years ago. She is concerned about her safety.
“We don’t know. Are we getting dangerous criminals? Are we getting felons? Or are we getting people who are simply down on their luck,” said Ennis.
However, another neighbor is in favor of the county’s plan.
“I don’t think that it makes [the neighborhood] any less safe, no,” said Andrew Atkinson.
He believes that the county must take immediate action
“It’s going to take more than this, I think, to solve the problem. But I’m glad to see they’re trying,” said Atkinson.
Many upset neighbors have plans to express their concerns at a community meeting Friday night in Santa Rosa.
County leaders plan on discussing about the plan to buy the houses and other housing alternatives in dealing with the homeless.
Hofstra University Partially Kneels to the Leftist Mob by Relocating Thomas Jefferson Statue
On June 23, 2020, Hofstra President Stuart Rabinowitz announced that Thomas Jefferson’s statue would be moved from its current location.
The College Fix reported that the statue was moved from the “Sondra and David S. Mack Student Center to behind the school’s Emily Lowe Museum.”
Rabinowitz declared that the decision was made “with the help of the university’s Committee on Representation in Public Spaces.”
“Institutions, like people, evolve, and come to new understandings based on the work and words of activists and leaders,” Rabinowitz stated. “It has become clear to all of us that the pain of our Black students and citizens in regards to the symbols and representation of our national history is substantial.”
Student activists weren’t satisfied with this current decision and filed a Change.org petition calling for the complete removal of the Jefferson statue after Rabinowitz made his announcement.
The petition points out that the new location contains the university’s Department of Drama & Dance, “two fields of performance that are systematically structured to disadvantage people of color from advancing further or to the level of their white counterparts.”
“What kind of message does it send to current & prospective students of color?” the petition asked would be signers. The petition organizers called attention to Jefferson owning “close to 600 slaves and raped many enslaved black women to bear his biological children.”
Members of the activist group JGG!, Jefferson’s Gotta Go!, expressed similar views in The Hofstra Chronicle.
“It’s not really a victory, because they didn’t actually do anything in accordance with our demands,” declared Rosario Navalta, the current leader of the JGG! campaign at Hofstra.
Although JGG! has made it a point to get rid of the Jefferson statue, they have been willing to compromise by letting school authorities move the statue indoors. “The least you could do is get it out of our sight,” Navalta stated. “Nobody wants to see it. It’s caused enough grief. We’re done.”
The petition currently has over 1,800 signatures and needs 2,500 signatures in total to meet its goal.
The kulturkampf continues across America.
The monuments being knocked down aren’t just inanimate objects, but rather artifacts of the Historic American Nation.
