Recently, a friend of mine shared an enlightening interview featuring the Former San Francisco County Supervisor, Angela Alioto. I strongly recommend you spare some time to watch it:

In this revealing conversation, Alioto confesses that she no longer recognizes or calls San Francisco her home. Despite her family roots tracing back to the 1800s in the city, the transformation she witnesses today leaves her bewildered.

Her tale will strike a chord with you, drawing parallels with what we’re experiencing in our hometown, Reno. The startling amounts of funds allocated to combat homelessness continue to escalate while the severity of the problem only intensifies. Consequently, the safety of our city is compromised.

According to recent rankings, Reno is considered one of the least safe cities in Nevada, primarily due to the rampant homelessness problem and welcoming city approach Schieve championed. Alarmingly, the only aspect seemingly outpacing our homelessness issue is the spending directed toward it.

In Alioto’s interview, she discusses an organization where 75 cents of every dollar received for homeless aid was funneled toward administrative expenses. Upon scrutinizing our situation in Washoe, will we find striking similarities?

Consider the notorious circus tent project: we’ve sunk what, nearly $120 million into it? Meanwhile, the county’s budget is increasingly prioritizing homelessness and “indigent” issues. It begs the question, where exactly is our money going?

Despite our fervent appeals, we are yet to receive a line-item audit or even basic public records to address our concerns. It’s becoming evident that there’s a serious cover-up at play here. Our hard-earned tax dollars are not being allocated as promised.

The question persists – where is the money really going?

It’s time that Brown-Stain, Comrade Hill-Insky, and Hide’n Hillary Schieve come clean with what’s really going on. One way or another, it’s all coming out.

It’s time we hold power accountable. Continue to speak truth to power. Enough is enough.



Helping people who need it is important because it shows that we care about each other in our community. But we have to be careful not to help too much, or people won’t learn how to take care of themselves. When our town uses our money to help homeless people, it’s like we’re all chipping in to make sure everyone has a chance at a good life. But we have to make sure that money is used right, so we check up on it with something called auditing. Currently, we have cover-ups, not coverage. Is time for a full-blown audit, don’t you agree?
