Msgr. Trevizo said that the Bond Committee has recommended needed funding for affordable housing, neighborhood reinvestment, parks, open space, bike paths, a building for JobPath, and other community needs. “Think of what we are leaving our children,” Msgr. Trevizo said, “we must invest in our community’s future.” He also mentioned that St.John’s has over 12,000 parishioners and that he has scheduled a meeting on June 13th to start explaining the importance of voting for the Bond.
Rev. Sandwell-Weiss reminded the Supervisors about the need for affordable housing so that families, like those with parents graduating from JobPath, can work their way out of poverty and find a home they can afford. In previous weeks, JobPath Board members and PCIC leaders Rev. Steve Springer, Pastor of Dove of Peace Lutheran, ELCA, Art Mendoza, SEIU, and Jimmy Ojeda, Casa Maria, all spoke in support of the Bond Election.
A final vote by the Supervisors is expected on Tuesday, April 21st. PCIC is asking the community to attend at 8:30 am that day to give the Supes the COURAGE to place the Bond on the November ballot.
