Let's review @MayorToddGloria's previous #SOTCSD remarks, what he said- and what he did not say- and how people reacted.
1) 2022- He never mentioned how @SanDiegoPD routinely criminalize people for being unhoused and/or needing to use a bathroom
2) But @MayorToddGloria has pledged things like:
Transparency (see: Ash Street)
Fiscal responsibility (Also- see Ash St. $175M bond)
And equity (See: lack of #EEOC contract compliance)
3) #Homelessness & #Diversity? Not so good.
5% of #SanDiego residents are Black
20% of unhoused residents are Black

At his #StateOfTheCity address, @BilldeBlasio spoke about the challenges of caring for parents, children, & loved ones while working full-time jobs. I know this challenge firsthand, working for @cmlauriecumbo and caring for my mother living with #Alzheimers.
Several years ago, I moved back home to be with her in the house I grew up in. My partner and I pay out of pocket for my mother’s care bc our elder care/health care system is broken. We both work long days and barely make it home to see her.
Our #caregivers are rockstars & we couldn’t do it without them! There are enormous challenges to caring for an older parent - especially with a chronic ailment - and those who do it are presented with new challenges every day.
