MacLeod: Shelter ‘biting the hand that feeds’

Former shelter board member, county commissioner says situation is out of hand 

As Shelter From the Storm supporters prepare to rally and march in support of the shelter Wednesday night, some Union County residents feel the situation between the county and shelter has gotten out of hand.

That is the case with Colleen MacLeod, a former Shelter From the Storm board member and county commissioner.

MacLeod said she believes people lack information and are too quick to take a divisive stance on the issue.

Shelter supporters have planned a demonstration for 6 p.m. Wednesday night. They will march from Max Square to the Union County Board of Commissioners office to show their support for the shelter as the county moves forward with siting a new county courthouse on the shelter advocacy center’s footprint.

“I love the mission (of the shelter),” MacLeod said. “I just think they ought to have the information.”

MacLeod, who now owns and operates Joe Beans with her husband, Al, served on the shelter’s board of directors from November 1989 to September 1993. During that time she was involved in facilitating and building the safe house.

Later, while a county commissioner, MacLeod was involved and saw the shelter building built on the county campus.

“It was good news. It was a really good idea,” she said, noting that commissioners did get some pushback from the community for putting the building up.

MacLeod served as a county commissioner from 1997 to 2008.
