March 7 – Vote Yes on Measure H

“YES on H!” is a broad coalition that rallies to end homelessness for 45k+ across L.A. County within 5 years.

Voters throughout L.A. County will be asked to approve a new ¼-cent sales tax to support a homeless initiative. The county League board voted to support this measure and encourages all Leagues to endorse it.

A communication from Supervisor Sheila Kuehl notes that “if approved by voters next month, Measure H would generate about $355 million annually for ten years through a ¼-cent sales tax to fund services that would directly benefit children, foster youth, seniors, battered women, disabled individuals, veterans, and other homeless persons. At the same time, the measure would ensure accountability through independent citizen oversight and annual audits.”

Here’s the complete fact sheet

Proponents, opponents and experts on Measure S and Measure H will join Larry Mantle to break down the details of these local initiatives. Wednesday, March 1 from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Crawford Family Forum, 474 South Raymond Ave, Pasadena
