“I strongly support passage of measures D, E, F, H, I, & S, the workforce housing initiatives on this November’s Napa County and cities of Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, Calistoga, and American Canyon ballot.

Napa County & the 5 Cities strong and vibrant economy is under threat by increasing housing costs and a shrinking inventory of affordable housing for workers. This lack of affordable housing is forcing more and more workers to live farther and farther away from their jobs, increasing traffic throughout the region and hampering the ability of the County/Cities businesses to recruit and retain workers.

These measures represent a prudent and fiscally responsible way of generating desperately needed resources to increase the stock of affordable housing by raising the bed tax paid by tourists by 1 percent.

Most important, the estimated $5 million that would be generated by these measures can only be used to improve or preserve the availability of affordable housing in Napa County.

This election day cast a vote for Napa County’s economic future and join me in supporting measures D, E, F, H, I, and S!”
