There is a special election on Feb. 14 that would replace the expiring Vancouver housing fund. Proposition 3 would provide $100 million over 10 years for the Affordable Housing Fund and be funded by a new property tax levy. Governments continue to throw money at a growing problem that will not go away or be cured. The governor wants $4 billion, the county wants more and the city wants more. Our government cannot spend or tax their way out. Go to econw.com to read what they really said about homeless.
Please join me and others in voting “no” on Prop. 3.
