Senator Atkins Applauds Hire of Gordon Walker to Lead Regional Homelessness Task Force

June 22, 2017

Senator Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) issued the following statement regarding the hiring of Gordon Walker as CEO of San Diego County’s Regional Task Force on the Homeless:

“One only needs to drive the streets of downtown San Diego to see that homelessness continues to be a serious issue in our city. What San Diego County has needed most in its battle against homelessness is regional leadership with a singular focus. With Gordon Walker taking the helm of the Regional Task Force on the Homeless, we appear to be heading in the right direction. It will require system-wide cooperation and hard work, but I am hopeful that San Diego will soon see results similar to what Mr. Walker achieved in Utah.”
