Getting back to California from Europe during a global pandemic was certainly not the way I thought my trip would end. In January I arrived in Cordoba, Spain, for a two-and-a-half-month university study-abroad program and that’s where I had been living up until Saturday, March 14.

As California rents and property values continue to rise, it should come as no surprise that three housing-related measures will face voters on the November ballot, targeting veterans’ home loans, local rent control and housing construction for the homeless. Statewide, the average rent on a one-bedroom apartment is about $1,400, and a home costs $440,000 — far more than double the national average of $180,000.
