Senator Holly Mitchell's Statement on the 2019 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count

LOS ANGELES, CA – State Senator Holly Mitchell, a candidate for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors shared the following statement in response to the 2019 release of The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s Homeless Point in Time Count.

“The 12% increase of homeless residents in Los Angeles County reveals a hard truth about the complexity of our homelessness challenge and the multifaceted response it demands. We have work to do. There have been promising steps with the board of supervisors recent decision to allocate $460 million in funding from measure H for a countywide plan to address homelessness. This is the direction we need to build upon." shared Holly Mitchell. “LA County residents along with the countless organizations and men and women who are working directly on solving this crisis want to see tangible results from the increase in taxes we have voted for. Good examples of this includes more rapid re-housing, protections for renters to prevent homelessness and funding to support the men and women who provide the on-the-ground services and support to our brothers and sisters who are homeless. We cannot let the enormity of this issue deter our perseverance for creating the best sustainable solutions. Over 58,000 homeless residents are counting on us.”

Holly Mitchell is a State Senator representing California’s 30th District. She will be on the 2020 ballot to represent the Second Supervisorial District on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. To learn more about her candidacy visit www.HollyJMitchell.com
