Meeting on DHS, housing set for Friday at KCC
IT IS URGENT THAT EVERYONE ATTEND THIS MEETING!!
IT IS TIME FOR THE PEOPLE TO STAND UP...PLEASE STOP THE WAR ON THE POOR!!!!!
I worked with Representative Mizuno, and all of the rest of them to bring this meeting to Kauai. PLEASE attend. NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON was at the Public Housing Hearing accxept for me. People DID NOT know about the meeting. Now is yur chance. IF you come to this meeting, tht proves that the HPHA did not try hard enough to get people to attend. FURTHER, Kauai had NO REPRESENTATION at this proposal formation. NONE. Thus none of our concerns were adressed. DO you want to have credit checks, faster evictions if you are late and people who can afford the market rate living in the nicer sections of public housing and receiving special incentives to live there such as cable tv telephone service and electrical hookups paid for by HPHA rather than using that money to pay for a service such as a representative payee program, which would be voluntary, take charge of your finances, pay your bills and cut you a weekly spending check so thqt you would never be late for your rent again? Or how about the ability to use ELECTRONIC PAYMENT to pay your bill instead of having to physically WALK INTO A BANK BILL IN HAND to pay your resnt? We all know this would SOLVE the rent collection issue.
BUT INSTEAD HOUSING WANTS TO EVICT YOU< SHOVE YOU ONTO THE STREET< MAKE YOU H)OMELESS< AND THEN YOU WOULD HAVE NO OPTIONS BECAUSE YOU WOULD BE BANNED FROM HOUSING!! Do you want a paperpusher being responsible for getting you food stams, quest medical and financial help on time, and in a humane and equitable manner? Or do you prefer a licenced SOCIAL WORKER who actually cares about you and your family and services there to help you? Are you interested in having Macdonalds style one stop drive through services under a privatized agreement which will fire all of your workers, then rehire them for half the wages, and they will be grossly overqualified for jobs that will no longer require a degree or even experience? Just the ability to operate a computer system and push paper? A HEARTLESS cold system which will care nothing for you and intimidate you into NOT seeking help, and making access limited?
NO? WELL SHOW UP TO THE MEETING THEN!!
