Panos Prevedouros on the Homeless Issue in Our City: Help the
Homeless, Ban the Bums
Honolulu, Hawaii- July 9th, 2010 - Panos Prevedouros, candidate for
Mayor, makes clear his position on the homeless issue: Help for the
the Homeless, Ban the Bums.
Public monies should directly address issues NOT perpetuate and
incentivize bum and illegal behaviors.
“80% of our homeless here in our city are good people who are
facing hardship and most likely will get back on their feet in one
to six months,” Prevedouros says. “We need to take care of them and
their children. This includes shelter, health care, food, schooling
and retraining- but with strict monitoring and follow up so they
are enabled to return to society, instead of becoming accustomed to
a parasitic and outcast lifestyle.”
>15% are bums and freeloaders from elsewhere who get a free
ticket to come and hog our parks and beaches and rip us off with
more than $30,000 in annual benefits in health care, food, food
stamps and shelter services.
>5% are mentally ill, drug addicts or both. Some need treatment,
some need incarceration and a few need permanent
Enough! Let's get on with it and Fix the problem!
