Non-binding referendum on homelessness a waste of tax dollars

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear editor,

What an insulting token gesture the homeless referendum is, surely a ploy to pretend that local governments are addressing the issue while doing absolutely nothing.

A non-binding referendum is meaningless, the cost of administering it could be better passed on to direct action to help remedy homelessness. Studies, polls and referendums are a great way of doing nothing while pretending to be doing something.

What a waste of our tax dollars. How stupid do they think we are?

The homeless are with us, winter is coming, and all we are doing is making a hypothetical vote?

I am disgusted.
