Lynn, Greuel Thank Voters for Defeat of Measure S

Peter Lynn, Executive Director of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and Wendy Greuel, Chair of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority Commission, both made the following statement regarding Measure S.

We applaud the voters of Los Angeles for their overwhelming rejection of Measure S. They understood that the initiative would have dealt a tremendous blow to the effort to build affordable and low-income housing in the city. With the defeat of S, we can once again turn our full attention to implementation of Proposition HHH, approved by 77 percent of city voters this past November, which will house 9,000 chronically homeless individuals over the next several years. As the voters of Los Angeles made very clear yesterday, the only long-term solution to homelessness is housing.
