HOMELESSNESS/NOMINATIONS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “The Trump administration has tapped Robert Marbut, a consultant who has urged cities to stop feeding the homeless, to lead the agency that coordinates the government’s response to the crisis, drawing a rebuke from a top housing advocate. The administration last month pushed out Matthew Doherty, an Obama appointee, as executive director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness. Marbut will take the helm pending confirmation by the council at its Dec. 10 meeting, Jennifer Rich, a spokesperson for the group, confirmed on Wednesday [12-4-19]. As a consultant who advised cities on how to reduce homelessness, Marbut advocated putting unsheltered people in ‘24/7 programming’ to treat addiction and other issues — and to stop feeding them.”
