Re: “Median Alert

Living on the northwest side of town as a single young female, it's overwhelming when the panhandlers are literally on every block and they stare at you expecting help. Granted I'm not a paycheck away from being homeless, but the struggle is real, we are all struggling making ends meet, barely providing food on the table. I work hard for my paycheck and I'm still living pay check by pay check. It does bring a concern when there is a recent murder that just happened on oracle and rudasil, not saying they are all bad but again they are in my neighborhood and its worrisome because you don't know their health issues or whether they have psychological issues. It's upsetting that these folks don't have a place to live, arizona needs a better plan and more funds to resolve this, who has additional money to provide? I don't unfortunately. What about our school district? The future of Tucson? We need a better education system so these student don't drop out and begin living on the street? The panhandlers ARE destroying our dessert by polluting it with their trash. When you want to provide food and water some get upset because they want money, this has happened to me, and I refuse to give into their bad habits. You don't know who is really struggling and who is going to buy alcohol and drugs with the money you provide. Arizona needs a program to provide shelter and jobs these men and women can work for, we all have to work to become successful it's only fair for us who work hard and get an inch ahead. Why doesn't Arizona fund a program where these people can help clean our land, rebuild old apartments or buildings for homeless shelters, assist in recycling and composting, assist in setting up solar panels around town, Painting/clearing graffiti, or help fix our roads? I rather pay an extra 10 cents on state taxes for some sort of program that can help ALL panhandlers and not the ones who are sitting on an ice chest asking for money and food.
