San José, CA – In response to Governor Newsom’s State of the State address, Mayor Sam Liccardo, the Chair of the California Big Cities Mayors’ coalition, issued the following statement:

“My Colleagues in the Big City Mayors coalition and I applaud the Governor for his focus on homelessness as the crisis of our age. As mayors, we know what works to reduce homelessness: housing.  If provided the necessary resources, cities—more than any other government agency—are best equipped to get homeless residents off the street. We support the Governors’ call for an ongoing source of funding for solutions to street-level homelessness, and the coalition looks forward to working with the Governor and his team to ensure that strong accountability measures accompany any new funding.”
