Drysdale likes the homeless shelter right where it is, downtown in the center of our tourist district. She’s nuts, I’m voting for Villegas.
Yikes!!! Is that what she said?
No…fake news from a troll
Ha ha ha!!!You should run and give her some crazy competition! Entertainment!!!! Lol!
Ok genius.Here it is in Drysdale’s exact words: Right downtown.
In MANY conversations with people directly and indirectly involved with the Homelessness issue, I think Village 9 has some viable aspects. I think that it would be a safe place for people to go to get off the streets and attain some of the services they need. HOWEVER, the location being proposed for Village 9 is, in my and other health professional’s opinion, in the wrong place. If Village 9 is built across the street from the West Hawaii Civic Center and within proximity to Kealakehe schools, they first must obtain an EA and a PER. Then the contract bidding. Then start to build the infrastructure out of lava rock, etc., etc., etc. Additionally, since this is so far from the services that are already in place for the Homeless, there would have to be another line item in the County budget to transport these individuals to the Old Industrial area where their services are already set up.
On the other hand, if the County were to trade land with QLT for what the almost defunct International Marketplace is now, all the infrastructure is already in place as are kitchen and restroom facilities. It would take much less effort to convert this area than to start from scratch in the proposed area.
Yes, she said we should leave the homeless facilities right where they are, in the heart of downtown.
Villegas said. “It’s going to take a village
Evoking this phase is all you need to know….vote Drysdale
Not paid any attention, so thank you for the head’s up.
Only if you want the homeless zombie epicenter in the middle of downtown.
Put em in Bubba Gumps that should cut down on visitors!
The PA school has zero to do with the county council, so that’s a misinformed and pointless priority for Drysdale to have. Candidates can say and promise a lot of things–sometimes things they have no power over influencing–so I would pick the person who seems to have a grasp of what functions the county council overseers in reality.
I love all the trolls who come on here and post for Drysdale😀 They don’t even live here in Hawaii and they’re trying to defend her plan for plopping the homeless shelter on Luhia Street right across from two shopping centers and many small businesses in the industrial marketplace. Perhaps Ms Drysdale should get out more often to understand the lay of the land here in West Hawaii before she makes sweeping generalizations of where to put a homeless shelter because of water and restroom access.
How do you know where anyone lives, or where you live for that matter?
Sounds like they both have negatives to me, so choose your democrat.
Well I certainly know where I live Dhu. How bout you Dhu? You certainly don’t live here so why make commentary? Hawaii will remain Democratic long after you’re dead and buried and still chanting lock her up from the grave. BTW, thanks for validating my point with your reply!
This IS the internetz, no one knows who you are or where you are.
Thank you for exposing your liberal taint, will be good to know to ignore your posts in the future, wherever and whoever you really are.
It’s called an IP address sunshine. You should brush up on your internet skills and your “internetz” commentary is a nice little distraction….for WITZW…lol
The tell me mine genius, at least the last 5 digits.
There was a very weird character here some time back always going on about IP addresses, never responded once to his BS claim of seeing them.
Are you that creep with another sockpuppet ID?
Still waiting for some IP info or are you just another liberal liar like that poofter that used to try the same “IP” schtick as if he had access?
He went silent as well when smacked up against the wall and told to prove it.
OK you POS liar, 3 days now, where is this mysterious IP info you claim to have?
Ran and hid like the typical liberal wimp when slapped against the wall and demanded to back something up?
I spit on you.
Triggered Much Snowflake? Another old white man who cruises disqus boards with his Hillary avatar and makes 1789 comments because he couldn’t compete in a multinational country. I vote for a new avatar of the wicked witch of the West for you https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1d2cd080f49815c5f17eda2897854bd56e7758f30772ae227cd72c418d8c5d07.jpg …I’m melting….melting…BTW “whitey” Villegas won🌴🌴🌴 and three posts later, so much for ignoring my posts
Was waiting for you to show to everyone reading that you are just another liberal POS that posts lies and then runs and obfuscates when pinned to the wall to put up or shut up.
Now I know you are a lying coward, the block is on.
Right in the middle of drug central…..old industrial.
