Bob Slobe sounds off on the homeless issue

Robert “Bob” Slobe sounded off on the Bee’s Letters to the Editor regarding the recent issue of homelessness in North Sacramento along the American River, telling the Bee to get the city’s priorities straight:

Get city’s priorities straight

Re “Serna steps into breach on homeless” and “Kings must get back in the game on new arena” (Editorials, Feb. 10): As The Bee’s editorial board opines for the millionth time on our arena fate, one wonders what it thinks about a “world-class city.” Apparently the editorial board believes that a world-class city is more about arenas than about its “miserable place” rating, which is made worse by the fact that poor, working-class neighborhoods like North Sacramento bear the burden of homelessness. Shame on them.

– Robert Slobe, Sacramento

Slobe provided photos to the Sacramento Press of homeless encampments along the American River Parkway last month.
