Who's helping the mentally ill? Not Dan DeVaul


As an advocate for the mentally ill, I know what Christine Mulholland has done to help the mentally ill and the homeless in San Luis Obispo.

Mariann Cirelli ("Who else is helping the mentally ill?" Letters, March 17-24), what have you done to help the mentally ill and the homeless besides advertising your plight and trying to put down a person who really does more than anyone would ever know and never talks about her generous giving?

It is my opinion that the New Times article (March 3-10) should not have been titled "It's all about humanity" - it should have been titled "It's all about money for Mr. DeVaul." (It's very expensive to restore antique cars.)

The over $200,000 per year that Dan DeVaul made for renting his land and giving hope to those poor folks and then dashing that hope is shameful.

I wonder if there is a law whereby those folks can get their money back from someone who seems to have taken advantage of them by "thumbing his nose at the law" at their expense.
