Time to update you all. 623 signatures so far!! Let's share this everywhere and see if we can get to 1,000 by the time the City Council meets! I am not able to attend the meeting, but Deborah is planning on trying to be there to speak. It is advised to get there early if you want to have a say. I did hear back from a city representative today. Although Dover received the grant money for the center, they are not responsible for maintaining/staffing/opening it. They were just the money people. We have talked to people from the agency running it and have read an article posted on WMUR and it said that last weekend there was no need for it to be opened because the homeless population had other options such as staying on friends couches, staying with family, or going to hotels. We all know that isn't reality. If they could stay on friends' couches or with family there wouldn't be a homeless problem. Being put up in hotels isn't happening due to COVID. There was a very misinformation article published on the WMUR website tonight. I have included the link. I will post another update tomorrow night if we get more information. Thank you all for your ongoing support!
