    I strongly support acquiring hotels and other buildings to house our unsheltered neighbors! It saddens me a bit to learn that so far the only hotels that have been acquired are budget hotels. The current effort is not anywhere near enough and it is taking far too long. We must act with haste and urgency and put all available resources toward providing shelter to every person without a home to shelter-in-place in.
