Homelessness has exploded over the last decade costing the residents of Orange County $299 million each year and and there is no sign of the costs slowing down.  For years, lawmakers have failed to solve the problems, and they continue to fall short of a resolution.  As I have sat here for the past few years watching both parties tackle the problem, I realized that as usual, the solution lies somewhere in the middle.  I’m ready to tackle this problem with real solutions for our County.  Are you ready to #GovernTogether?
