SAN DIEGO — In early returns, Measure A, a proposed housing bond in San Diego, appeared to be short of the two-thirds of the vote it needs to pass.
The bond would allow the city to issue up to $900 million in bonds to fund low-income, substance abuse and mental health service housing, and would be repaid by a levy of between $3 and $21 per $100,000 in property value.
By Wednesday morning, the measure had just 57.4% approval.
Yes on Measure A – Homes for San Diegans was leading support for the measure. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and San Diego City Councilmember Chris Ward are among the local officials that endorsed the measure.
