Candidates for LA County 3rd District Supervisor Bob Hertzberg and Lindsay Horvath:

· Questions on Homelessness impact on business owners ; division of responsibility on the city for tackling the mental health/homeless issue

· Bob: moral crisis, public safety and health risks. City council did an ordinance

· Regional approach – no legal obligation – small cities should tackle the issues on their own not depend on LA county to do it on its own – separation of powers

· Lindsay: identify the issues and then solve them, get people off the streets and connect them to housing and care for health, mental health, or drug issues

· Street teams to connect individuals to get them help with service, housing, and systems of care
