NAACP San Diego Supports Hotel Tax Increase for Homeless

 

Steve Dorner from the Housing Committee communicates the NAACP San Diego Branch’s support of the initiative proposed by Councilmember Alvarez.  This initiative would raise the Transient Occupancy Tax (Hotel Tax) by 1%, and advise the Mayor to dedicate that 1% increase to reducing Homelessness.

Mr Dorner also put the Council on notice that should the measure pass, the NAACP will watch closely to see that the Mayor and Council follow the direction to spend the money on the Homeless.
