Translation: What Hall reads in a city study on homelessness is more important than what his constituents see and smell every day.
And: I can do what I want. Voters will forget.
Besides: My constituents want to protest the homeless situation, but they're not really serious about change. If voters really wanted to clean up the city, they wouldn't elect people like me to the Board of Supervisors. (For the record, the six San Francisco supervisors who voted against implementing Proposition N are Tom Ammiano, Chris Daly, Matt Gonzalez, Hall, Fiona Ma and Sophie Maxwell.)
