Celebrating wins after a hard fought election.
The 2018 mid-term election is over and, at the Leadership Group, we are celebrating the successful passing of Props. 1, 2 and the defeat of Prop. 6 thanks to the robust and tireless efforts of our CEO and President Carl Guardino and members of the Leadership Group team who were on loan to the campaigns.
Through their efforts, Prop. 1 will provide $4 billion in bonds to build and provide affordable housing for veterans, working families, people with disabilities, and many others who need a stable, affordable home.
Prop. 2, the “No Place Like Home” Program, authorizes the state to use a small percentage of funding generated by the Mental Health Services Act to leverage a $2 billion bond to build supportive housing linked to services for Californians living with a serious mental illness who are homeless or at great risk of becoming homeless.
The defeat of Prop. 6 means $5 billion in annual funding will remain in place to fill potholes, repair crumbling bridges, improve commutes and provide highway safety and transit alternatives.

Prop. 1’s campaign Executive Committee was led by four key organizations: California Housing Consortium, Housing California, Silicon Valley Leadership Group and the State Building and Construction Trades Council of California.
