“…As California’s housing situation worsens, an increasing number of communities are turning to solutions like Measure H. The city of Los Angeles, Santa Clara County and Alameda County passed similar affordable housing bonds in 2016.
“The Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California, or NPH, advocates for these measures. According to the organization, Berkeley, San Jose and Santa Rosa voters will also consider affordable housing bond measures this November.
Alina Harway lives in Santa Cruz County and works for NPH.
“If we don’t do something now to keep Santa Cruz County affordable, we’re going to lose so much. This should be a place where working families can raise their families. This should be a place where our teachers don’t have to drive an hour to get to the schools,” Harway says.”
