INDIANAPOLIS — Both candidates for mayor of Indianapolis pitched their best ideas to end homelessness in the city as they participated in a moderated discussion about the issue on Wednesday.
The discussion was part of the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP). CHIP is a local organization designed to end homelessness in Indianapolis.
Democratic Mayor Joe Hogsett and Republican Sen. Jim Merritt took five questions each on the issue.
"No one should live in a cardboard box. Especially a veteran," Senator Merritt said.
"The truth is, 78 cities and three states have effectively ended veteran homelessness. So, point one — it can be done," Mayor Hogsett said.
