  1. I appreciate Roundtable publishing these two letters, with their differing perspectives, on the eve of the LUC’s next meeting regarding the future of the Margarita Inn.

    The sentiments Diana Durkes expressed are real and should be taken into account. People are offended and even outraged when they see strangers outside their homes behaving inappropriately. Still, a comparison of her letter with that of Susan Munro and Toni Rey makes clear that her anecdotal evidence is counter-weighted by quantifiable evidence that the Margarita experiment is working for a vast majority of those who have lived there since 2020. No evidence is presented that cutting the Margarita’s capacity from 70 to 30 will eliminate Diana Durkes’ concerns, but it would certainly reduce Connections’ ability to help the homeless.
