Homeless Listen to Mayor

Over a hundred homeless and friends demonstrated in front of the courthouse from 7am until 7:30 and then proceeded into the Courthouse. Supporters of Homeless Housing represented more than half of all citizens that came to listen to the Mayor. The majority of the other attendees were employees of the city.

It was clear by “hissing sounds” that came from homeless members that the majority of the group was not happy with the announcements made by David Manning, the Chief Financial Officer of the City. The initial report presented included the budget Metro’s Homelessness Program. This only included the request from the Homeless Commission that would allow for 50 units of permenant supportive housing. Specifically, the budget was presented as follows:



Additional FY 2008 Funding* $600,000
Additional MDHA Funding $600,000
Initial Funding Recommended by Mayor $600,000
Social Services Funds Reallocated to Program $689,400

*$450,000 of this funding will be included in the Capital Plan



Additional FY 2008 Funding* $600,000

This is for the 50 units of permanent supportive housing that the Mayor’s Commission to End Chronic Homelessness presented to Metro Socials Services Commission. $450,000 of this is NOT in the General Operating Budget but will be in the Capital Budget. The $150,000 of this amount that IS in the General Operating Budget is Supportive Services for these housing units.

Additional MDHA Funding $600,000

This is Federal Funds that was earmarked specifically for homeless housing. This could be used as matching fund for the $600,000 of city dollars for the 50 units.

Initial Funding Recommended by Mayor $600,000

This is the annual budget that has been recommended for the last 2 years of the Mayor’s Commission. It is positive that this was not cut.

Social Services Funds Reallocated to Program $689,400

This is Metro Social Services Homeless Services Unit Budget. This does not support homeless housing.


The Homeless will continue at three levels:
*Continued targeted education with Mayor and Metro Council from now through May 24th (delivery of Capitol Budget)

*Voter Registration and Get Out the Vote, focusing on Mayoral Candidates.
*More Public Education activities (to be determined)

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
