L.A.’s homeless population, voters to decide big school bond, and preventing HIV
Good morning, California.
The union representing groundskeepers who maintain the park around the California Capitol has filed a grievance citing five attacks on workers by homeless people.
The Department of General Services responded by saying groundskeepers can carry pepper spray and mace, but the state won’t yet pay for it, The Sacramento Bee reported Monday.
The Bee: “The union plans to keep pushing for the department to buy the workers pepper spray and train them on how to use it safely, said Brandy Johnson, a union representative.”
See you tomorrow.
