San Diego, CA — Today, the Scott Peters for Congress campaign announced that Rep. Peters’ work to help house our homeless, specifically our homeless veterans, is the focus of an advertisement that begins airing this week in the San Diego region on broadcast, cable, and Spanish-language television.

“No one should have to live on the streets, without a home, without shelter, and I’ve made it a priority to bring federal funds back home to San Diego to provide not just transitional housing, but also the supportive services needed to help people get back on their feet, people like Kevin,” Peters said. “Homelessness affects everyone and the skyrocketing cost of housing only makes it worse. I’m committed to tackling both crises.”

Peters provides voice over for the ad and says, “When I think about homelessness, I think about people like Kevin, who was a homeless veteran who suffered crippling seizures due to his service – just hoping for a second chance.” He continues, “It’s why I’ve stood up to Trump Republicans, to stop their devastating cuts. And why I wrote the Veteran HOUSE Act to cut through bureaucratic red tape and invest in more housing for veterans.”

The 30-second spot, titled “All In This Together,” features a formerly homeless veteran that is now back on his feet after receiving help from the federal Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program. In 2020, Rep. Peters’ bill, the Veterans HOUSE Act, which expands eligibility so more veterans qualify for VASH assistance, became law as part of the National Defense Authorization Act. In 2018, when the Trump Administration attempted to transfer money away from VASH programs, Peters passed legislation to stop those cuts. This amendment became law as part of the FY2019 federal spending bill.

Scott Peters is a Democrat who has served in the House of Representatives since 2013. He currently represents California’s 52nd congressional district and is running for re-election in the newly drawn 50th. Peters was the first Democrat to represent San Diego City Council District 1 and defeated a 12-year Republican incumbent in 2012 to turn San Diego’s congressional delegation to a democratic majority for the first time in County history. He is a member of the powerful House Energy & Commerce committee, Vice Chair for Policy of the New Democrat Coalition, which is the largest ideological caucus in the House, and he is a Vice Chair for the Western Region of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
