Support Redding City Council Kristen Schreder - Say NO to Take Back Redding Recall Efforts !




Why would a group called Take Back Redding or what seems like the same group Shasta Support Services want to recall a Redding City Councilperson who has went far and above any of her colleagues on the council ever have past or present?  Kristen Schreder , Redding city council should be commended not recalled for her POSITIVE SOLUTIONS TO THE HOMELESS POPULATION OF OUR COMMUNITY.

Solutions that certainly respect the civil and constitutional rights of the homeless which guard against civil liabilities that leave municipalities penniless. Her desire for Shasta County to join in the conversation of solutions is spot on. And certainly her desires expand to much more than a one tool box fix ( RPD Criminalization) which many cities have come to discover NEVER WORKS!, and is unfair to Redding Police Dept members. It has been said " That if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem", and I think it is becoming quite clear that individuals and groups demonize, ostracize, and attempt to recall those who come with honest, positive intentions. If you attack plans to build a homeless day center, or a village of tiny homes, or a homeless tent camp then you are indeed part of the problem.... Who does the vetting of Take Back Redding / Shasta Support Services members ? Why would they be allowed to establish relationships and trust to go into and discover homeless camp areas to do the Point in time homeless survey here then later Shasta Support Services members are quoted in local news media saying "they call law enforcement if they come across any homeless activity."?

He and his neighbor, Michael Roberts, joined in Redding-area cleanups more than a year ago before forming their own community service group, Shasta Support Service." - Richard DuPertuis, a NewsCafe.com

  2. Meetings and Committees do not help the homeless situation. Stop spending money and do something!

    1. That's why everyone's so mad. Endless and useless 'TALK'....nothing ever gets done.

  3. Actually much has been done and to get programs implemented to offer a hand up to those who have fallen is what's needed now. This does not support crime or attract more problems to our area. It puts people back to work who are able and houses them in transitional and permanent housing that they must work to benefit from it unless too disabled too.

    1. Wrong, we need a police force that makes Redding uncomfortable to the homeless population, the reason Redding has so many homeless is we make Redding a safe haven for them! There are programs in place for out of work citizens, those who need a hand up...but the majority here do not want that help. They are Chronic homeless..,only when we make Redding an uncomfortable city for the homeless will the tide turn!

    2. Absolutely! Enough already! Goes back to the thought of not feeding wild animals... they become dependant & forget how to fend for themselves.

    3. These are PEOPLE. NOT ANIMALS. Humans. Some are broke and need fixing. If not fixable you gonna shoot them? Luckily most just need a little help. As many as 10 million families lost their homes to foreclosure during the housing crisis. As a result, nearly all of them had to move. Some slipped through the cracks and became homeless. That 2008 Housing Crisis Displaced More Americans than the 1930s Dust Bowl!

      We are one more bank collapse or "bubble burst" away. How secure is your job? With technology taking over you best hope you married into money or a job because if the Govt. passed all the laws the angry uninformed chant for you could be in jail as well.

  4. With a dedicated tax to public safety and to help sustain a new or expanded county jail and its rehab programs our city and county can rise up to be a county of producers that succeed in all they do.
