Pick of the day: Attacking homelessness

Mayor Clem Seifert’s homelessness committee reaches out with a series of focus groups throughout the day at the Senior Center downtown. The series of discussions will give service providers, the homeless themselves and other groups a chance to talk about what’s needed and what can be done to solve the problem of homelessness. (This would be one of those Seifert initiatives, with arrangements by assistant Sandra Wilkerson, that you probably wouldn’t have seen under Chick Young.) The public will get its chance to weigh in during Monday’s Speak Up Henderson forum at 6 p.m. at the Municipal Building.
