Ahead of the elections, a group rallied in San Diego Tuesday in favor of Proposition 1. Proposition 1 would authorize $4 billion in general obligation bonds for housing-related programs, loans, grants, and projects and housing loans for veterans. The measure would benefit programs like CalVet home loan and the Multifamily Housing Program. The San Diego Housing Federation hosted the 'Vote Yes on Prop. 1' rally in North Park. "Because of the cost of living, they are not able to pay their rent or rent is very high," said Councilmember Georgette Gomez of District 9, who is in favor of it. "So they're spending more money on rent and they can't afford everything else they need to have a good quality of life. We need more money to be able to build more affordable housing."
