Assemblymember Dr. Corey Jackson Stands Firm on Affordable Housing Crisis: Will Not Support Other Bond Measures Without Housing Solution

For immediate release:

Sacramento – Assemblymember Dr. Corey Jackson today announced his firm stance on the proposed bond measures for school facilities and climate change initiatives. Dr. Jackson emphasized the urgent need to address California's affordable housing crisis, declaring he will not support any bond measures unless a separate bond measure for affordable housing is seriously included in the conversation as a priority to send to voters this November or a commitment is made through the budget. 


"While education and climate initiatives are undoubtedly important, the immediate crisis we face is the severe lack of affordable housing. This shortage is driving up living costs and forcing many families to spend over 50% of their income on rent or become homeless. This is unacceptable."


"Our state is facing an unprecedented housing crisis that requires immediate and decisive action," continued Dr. Jackson. "It is imperative that we include an affordable housing bond measure to deliver comprehensive solutions to our constituents and develop the housing we critically need. The time to act is now."


Assemblymember Jackson urges his colleagues and the public to recognize the importance of prioritizing affordable housing in the upcoming bond measures. He remains committed to advocating for the needs of his constituents and ensuring that all Californians have access to safe and affordable housing.
