Dirty Streets
updated: May 14, 2014, 5:00 PM

By Lori Pearson

I would like to tell everyone in our City of Santa Barbara that now the homeless are [defecating] in the front yards of Castillo !!! It's happened twice. This time he left toilet paper there so he can come back for the third time!!! It is a health matter for the city. Our Mayor should come clean the mess up since she created the overcrowded streets of beggars and people [defecating] on Castillo St. as they make their way to Oak Park. Kids play on our sidewalks, and nurses walk in the afternoon down our streets, along with many nice home owners whom pay taxes and a lot of taxes. Shouldn't have to go pick up human [feces] in the morning to start the day off!! I have a friend that has worked with the homeless for 30 years and said the Mayor has let this get out of hand. 90 % of the people I work with and friends and my clientele (Business) tell me that they won't walk the streets or go downtown anymore. Well now don't walk anywhere. I am a local and can't believe this city let's this happen. Shame on all of you politicians. Carpinteria doesn't put up with this and Ventura is taking big steps to take care of their downtown. You don't think the visitors on the ships and tourist don't talk about how disgusting our town has become.... Bring Santa Barbara back. We can't afford nor should we have to put up with the city taken over by begging , shitting in our streets where kids play! This is a health hazard!!! Help our residence homeless. We can't save the world!!!!! Come pick the [feces] up on Castillo St.
