The Human rights Commission heard from the City Commissioner Fritz, on why we needed more time for discussion on this subject. I myself feel we should expedite sunsetting it.
I am concerned about this issue and feel like it is of "ones best interest" to let Commissioner Fritz and the full council at City Hall, aware of your feeling and reasons why you would advocate for the sunsetting of this unjust law.
She mentions she is seeking input and wants dialog from those it would impact the most
She seemed genuine in her question ... but only needs to listen to her heart
The fact that this law can be manipulated and the ones with out a home will be impacted the most seems unjust and un acceptable

With no disrespect I am advocating strongly for better ideas than resorting to the sit lie ... and I am encouraging laws that have dignity, civil respect, and human rights in the framework of the law.
