Re: “The INDY’s Endorsements for Orange County Schools and Affordable Housing Bonds

I urge the Indy to reconsider. The Indy has long been an advocate of strategic investments in community assets, so it is stunning that it failed to acknowledge or respect the Orange County Affordable Housing Strategic Plan or any of the municipal affordable housing goals and objectives. It is wishful thinking to assume that the private sector will resolve our affordable housing crisis without a level of public investment. This bond provides the means for meaningful public/private partnerships and strategic investments where the private sector will not or cannot act. While no bond is a panacea, the failure to pass this bond will mean that our affordable housing non-profits and providers will continue to struggle to meet the minimum needs and the strategic plan will be rendered a pile of dust on the shelf. No bond means status quo which means that OC will continue it's march towards becoming a place affordable by only those able to quality for 350K+ mortgages and high rents.
