Mayor's Public Safety Task Force Member Is "Fine with Junkies Dying"
Public Safety Task Force Member Steve Schlicht Displays Insensitivity to Addiction
Steve Schlicht, a member of the City of Santa Cruz's Public Safety Task Force and the director of marketing communications and information technology for Take Back Santa Cruz, posted on Facebook that he is "fine with junkies dying somewhere else. Outside the county is fine by me."

The City's website describes the task force: "The Santa Cruz City Council created the Public Safety Citizen Task Force (Task Force) to provide a platform for the community to come together to better understand our current public safety concerns and recommend actions we take to improve the quality of life in Santa Cruz. The Task Force consists of community members, business owners, educators, and safety experts and broadly represents the community. Task Force members will work together over the next six months to identify and explore the underlying safety concerns we face as a community and present their independent findings and recommendations to the City Council."
