Say No to BO
Mapleton, UT

Mr. Wesemann is quoted thus in the article: “There are a lot more families that we see in the shelters and a lot more families that we find out on the street,” he said.
Does he know how to read his own data? Surely, "a lot" means different things to different people, but this study is clearly being misinterpreted for political points.
I worry about bias here if the VOA leader himself is seeing a significant increase in homeless families. Given the fact that Utah's family population in general is growing, the percentage of homeless families is actually down significantly.
Torture numbers and they'll confess to anything.
