    • It’s sad Walnut Creek isn’t what it use to be.. something happened during the early covid years. We started to see an influx of criminals and inner city folks moving in..

      • A WC officer told me 5+ years ago that there was a big change in transient/ homeless population because the Trinity center was being so generous with food and necessities. He said that the recipients were telling their friends in SF and they were Barting over in significant numbers. He had just gotten off shift and came in for an appointment and said that WC had gotten 30 some calls that night and his buddy in San Ramon had only gotten 2. I will never forget it because it was a little scary for me to hear and to see his worried reaction. And now that it is the way it is I think that might have been the tip of the iceberg.
