Katie Hill: Used Homeless to Become Rich



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views


In 2018 Katie Hill ran for Congress based on her “record” as a person helping the homeless.  As we now find out she used her position to keep her bed warm.  Worse, she used it to get rich, while the homeless problem become worse.  Her support for a bond measure was not to help the homeless, but to help herself.

“According to tax returns obtained by the California Globe, in 2016, Hill who was then working for Path, (People Assisting The Homeless)  a non-profit that helped pass Measure H was making $160k a year. In 2017, Hill was given a substantial raise that increased her salary to $174k a year. Despite a six-figure salary homelessness grew under Hill’s tenure.

Hill worked for PATH from 2010 to 2017 and used her platform of helping the homeless get elected into Congress despite the state’s failed track record of success with that issue.

Bonin, like Hill, pushed for Measure H to pass and used his ballot measure committee, LA Forward to promote another tax increase with Measure HHH for supportive housing.”

She gave speeches, had tears, but like many in the Homeless Industry were on it for themselves.  Too bad the people of the 25th Congressional District did not know her true motives and actions.

Well it is always interesting to see what the executive pay schedules are for any so-called “NGO” or “non-profit.” One of the yardsticks that folks who are concerned with fraud use in measuring whether a “non-profit” is really that or a tax-dodging front organization is how much is spent on executive salaries.

While one may scoff that a $14,000 a year pay boost is peanuts, I am sure there are many citizens in Ventura County who would consider an almost 9% pay increase to be pretty darned significant.

It’s not her fault that the people who voted for her didn’t do their research. I agree, what does her salary have to do with anything…

Not a fan of her “work”. But your article just brings one single fact to light. What DO you think she should have been paid? How much do you think her raise SHOULD have been?

And if she created the Foundation and raised the funds, (albeit from suckers) and complied with 501c3 as a non-profit, what business is it of yours what her salary was?
