Here is the truth about the homeless downtown. This is Alley Valkyries’ tribe and extended family who she invited to stay – then she moves to France! I lost a couple of good friends who did not want to be linked to this terrorism via me and my blog. I suspect these witches contact my facebook friends.
In modern-day downtown Eugene, accountant Michelle Gall told city councilors recently that she uses the term with co-workers as she prepares to walk the one-block stretch of West Broadway between Willamette and Olive streets.
“That’s truly what it feels like,” said Gall, whose three children attend day care in the area.
The homeless men loitering along the block call out with “derogatory and vulgar words and phrases that no woman should have to hear and, more importantly, no child should have to hear directed at their mother,” she said.
Now, Gall and other downtown merchants, employees and residents are loudly urging political leaders to clean up an area they say is becoming increasingly hostile and unsafe.
During a recent City Council meeting, nearly 40 downtown advocates, as part of an ongoing campaign, asked city councilors to acknowledge the problems and find a solution before the crowds of loiterers further harm downtown renewal.
Women testified to being followed and sexually harassed. Men spoke of being threatened.
