Carl DeMaio to Release “CLEAN STREETS” Initiative to Combat Homelessness

DeMaio Urging Voters to Reject Homeless Tax Hike (Measure C) and Instead Demand Politicians Return to Using Law Enforcement to Force Homeless Into Treatment Programs

WHAT: Congressional Candidate Carl DeMaio will release a major initiative to combat homelessness which has reached epidemic proportions in California’s cities. DeMaio is calling his initiative “CLEAN Streets” which stands for “Coordinated Law Enforcement Action Now” on homeless on the street.

DeMaio blames a “culture of coddling” homeless for the crisis and says law enforcement must be given back powers to force homeless into mental health and substance abuse programs. DeMaio is committing resources to defeat various tax hikes being proposed by politicians that they claim will go to fund programs for the homeless.

“Career politicians are literally throwing good money after bad by funding failure again and again on homelessness,” said DeMaio. “We cannot tax our way out of this homeless crisis – we must enforce our way out of it,” DeMaio noted.

WHY: “Career politicians are trying to get voters to approve yet another massive tax hike with Measure C and falsely claim it will solve the homeless crisis. Measure C will actually make things worse because politicians are literally throwing good money after bad by funding failure again and again on homelessness,” said DeMaio. “We cannot tax our way out of this homeless crisis – we must enforce our way out of it,” DeMaio noted.

About Carl DeMaio:
At a time when too many politicians cave in on their principles or merely pay lip-service to their constituents, Carl DeMaio is a fighter who takes action for what he believes in. A successful businessman, DeMaio founded his first company by age 24, his second by age 29, and sold both by age 33. Since then, he has hosted a popular news/talk radio show on NewsRadio 600 KOGO, and founded Reform California – a grassroots campaign advocacy organization for government accountability and has blocked over $3 billion in tax hikes.

Now Carl DeMaio is running for U.S. Congress with a plan to shake it up by advancing a bold, fresh Reform Agenda and recruiting other principled reformers to run for office.
