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."?
"Shasta Support Service co-founder Dale Ball (center) consults with volunteers near the end of the work day. 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
