“I built my life and family here more than 60 years ago. I always imagined I’d live here the rest of my life. Measure A provides affordable housing so seniors like me can stay where we call home.”
“My wife and I work hard to provide for our three children. But, at times, I didn’t think we were going to be able to get by. Securing affordable housing made all the difference. I want other families and their children to have these same opportunities.”
“After returning from my service in Iraq, I fell on some pretty rough times. Without supportive housing, I’m not sure I would have made it. Measure A can help more veterans get the safe, affordable housing they deserve.”
“As a single mother, I worked two jobs for nearly twenty years to put my boys through college. When I was able to finally secure an affordable home for myself last year, I knew it meant having a place my grandchildren can visit. I’m voting YES on measure A so we can create more affordable housing opportunities for our community.”
“I still remember the fear I faced that our family was going to end up homeless when I had to take money from my rent to repair my broken down car. Affordable housing changed my life and created a more stable and healthier environment for my kids.”
