The 11-newspaper Southern California Newspaper Group today urged readers to vote no on Proposition 21.
In an editorial headlined “Proposition 21 will make the housing crisis worse. Vote No,” the newspapers noted that the measure will hurt affordable housing construction, reduce property values, and will result in fewer rental properties available.
Prop. 21 “distorts, and damages, the housing market and nearly everyone in it. It doesn’t spur homebuilding. It does lower land values. It forces properties off the rental market. And above all, it doesn’t help people at the low end of the economic scale…” says the editorial.
