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.
