Mayor Rahm Emanuel today took steps to make sure homeless people seeking help in the wee hours of the morning during the winter can get rides to shelters — just two days after aldermen pushed back on the issue.
Under the mayor’s plan, $200,000 would be set aside to reinstate two to three homeless outreach teams between 12 a.m. and 8 a.m. from Nov. 15 until temperatures warm up again, likely sometime in April. Overnight teams were eliminated about two months ago after the state cut in half grant funding that helped pay for city homeless services.
The cuts fell under the spotlight Monday, when the aldermen expressed concern about it at a budget hearing.
Evidently we must vote even less than homeless people since the aldercreatures and Rahm are sucking up to their unwashed asses. Plus, Rahm doesn't want to look like a complete hypocrite driving around Shortshank's ass and not catering to the other dregs of society.
