Eric Garcetti on Welfare & Poverty

 

 


Worked on adding homeless shelters & affordable housing

The mayor says although it is challenging to find long-term solutions to the homeless crisis, the city has been making progress. "The longer I've worked on this, I'm incredibly proud and incredibly optimistic at the things that are now finally getting into the ground: 28 new shelters, 11,000 permanent apartments that are coming up as we speak, and the next mayor will benefit and the city will benefit from that hard work," Garcetti said.

Supports UBI as "Mayors for a Guaranteed Income"

[Stockton Mayor Michael] Tubbs in 2018 launched the Economic Empowerment Demonstration, otherwise known as the SEED Project, with one goal: give 125 people $500 a month for 18 months and see if improves their living situations. And it appears to have worked: People receiving the money spent nearly 40% of it on food; about 24% went to sales and merchandise; 11% went to utility bills, and 9% went to auto repairs and fuel. The rest went to a combination of medical expenses, insurance, donations, education and more.

Nearly two years after launching the program, Tubbs announced another milestone in the country's quest for Universal Basic Income: a coalition of 11 city mayors, collectively known as Mayors for a Guaranteed Income. The coalition include Tubbs, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Adrian Perkins, mayor of Shreveport, La., [and several others].
