Our homeless crisis is staggering and the struggles on our streets are growing as more people fall into homelessness. The time to act is now. Lives of so many men, women and children are on the line.
It's why numerous San Diego leaders have come together to support Mayor Kevin Faulconer's #JobsStreetsPeople plan to modernize and expand the convention center, repair our roads and reduce homelessness.
The measure would generate $140 million for homeless services - in year one alone. Polling shows it has strong support among San Diego voters.
"For the sake of those on our streets, for the health of our community, I urge you to please support this measure now. We can’t afford to wait."
