All of these supporters noted that the only way to fix the region's housing crisis is by adding more housing stock and Measure B is the start of this process.
The Mayor of San Marcos Jim Desmond said about Measure B, "We have to understand that San Diego County's housing crisis is not a product of people moving here, it's about our younger generations not having the means to buy or rent here and having to relocate. Yes on B will provide our children and grandchildren with housing opportunities so that our families can stay together and people can live closer to where they work."
