Homelessness: Bry v. Gloria

December 3, 2019

Recently, my campaign introduced a new video that highlights the key differences between how Todd Gloria and I would address the homeless situation:

In 2012, Todd Gloria told San Diegans he would “end chronic homelessness downtown in four years.”

Instead, it increased.

That’s because, for over a decade, Gloria has viewed homelessness as just a housing problem. This one-size-fits-all approach has dug us into a deep and dangerous hole.

Of course, housing is a part of the solution.

But, we need to shift to a data-driven approach that cares for people on a case-by-case basis and addresses the many root causes of homelessness:

🧠 Mental Health Programs
🚭 Drug Rehabilitation
💬 At-Risk Youth Services
📚 Vocational Training
🏠 Permanent Supportive Housing

When you are in a hole, it’s usually smart to stop digging!

We need to accept the failure of past policies and make mental illness, drug addiction and public safety our priorities moving forward.

Can I Count on You?
Let’s get to work!

Barbara Bry
Candidate for Mayor of San Diego
