Though the November election is still fresh in our minds, it’s already time for L.A. voters to turn their attention back to the ballot box. That’s because there’s not one but two elections coming up this spring.
To help listeners make sense of the measures they’ll decide, AirTalk host Larry Mantle is back with another voter cram session focused on the primary nominating election on March 7 and the general election on May 16.
L.A. voters must decide on two measures related to homelessness. L.A. municipal Measure S would require development project approval that may affect housing for the homeless and county-wide Measure H would implement a quarter-cent sales tax to fund homeless services. Proponents, opponents and experts on Measure S and Measure H will join Larry to break down the details of these local initiatives.
