Los Angeles, CA – The following statement was issued by Rusty Hicks, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO and convener of the Build Better LA Coalition, regarding tonight’s No on Measure S victory:

“Today’s defeat of Measure S confirms that Angelenos want the affordable housing they voted for in November.

“While we still have a lot of work to do to ensure LA continues to be an inclusive place, defeating Measure S has spared our City from a future that would’ve meant fewer jobs, fewer funds for critical public services, fewer new homes for those who desperately need them, and even less affordable rents.”
