ORANGE COUNTY — August 23 — ICYMI — As a small business owner and Mayor of Laguna Hills I see it from both sides:  from the disastrous ultra-liberal policies coming out of Sacramento that make the cost of living untenable to the direct impact it has on local stores as homeless camps drive customers away.

As a small business owner, I often do business in the Los Angeles jewelry district.  The rise in homelessness has been awful for local retailers causing the flight to online etailers to move even faster. Why would you want to stomp through a dangerous and unclean shopping environment, when you can shop from the safety of your own home?

Liberal politicians need to protect local businesses, address the root of the problem, and stop increasing taxes on residents and businesses to fund failed policies.
