Are large-scale housing developments good for LA?
Raphael Bostic was quoted in a piece on KPCC by Josie Huang on large-scale housing developments in Los Angeles.
Raphael Bostic of the USC Price School agreed it should be less confusing to voters than if there were two measures. But he questioned if it would pass. He noted that the city recently raised its minimum wage, and a ballot question requiring prevailing wages might not play as well.
“This would be another effort that might be perceived as not business-friendly, and (voters) might shy away from positioning the city as anti-business,” Bostic said.
