Answer the following questions:
1. To protect the overall health of the community, do you agree with the Board of Supervisor’s call to Mayor Breed to make hotel rooms in San Francisco available for the homeless population? Why or why not?
2. What unintended consequences can you image could result from this type of directive, including the idea that the city should compel business/property owners to use these spaces?

Comment on Aristotle’s “Politics” from the reading list as it relates to Sinek’s ideas on the purpose of government. I realize that the video is more about American democracy and its institutions but think deeply on what Aristotle argues about the purpose of cities and states and the value of partnerships. The reading she is referring to is in the book of “The City Reader” online at www.vitalsource.com pages 249-258. For this, you can write an half page.
