"County, city must care for the most vulnerable" by Bridget Mary Meehan, Sarasota Herald Tribune


Kudos to Carrie Seidman for her April 12 column, “All talk, no action to protect homeless.” The failure of our city and county government officials to provide housing to protect and care for the unhoused is a moral failure and disgrace. We live in a community with plenty of money and resources, and with many people who care.
Our wonderful nonprofits are reliable partners in helping with this crisis, but many of these resources are no longer available because of the shutdown due to COVID-19.
We are all in this together. So, this means, Sarasota city and county officials, it is your job to lead, and take action now.
You were elected to solve difficult problems, not to talk about them forever. The only question is, are you up for the challenge?
For all of us, but especially for the most vulnerable among us, I hope so.
Bridget Mary Meehan, Sarasota, Florida
