Text: "AFFORDABLE FOR WHOM?" / "VOTE NO ON THE BOND"
The Jesus-fish in the bottom right-hand corner suggests one or both of the following:
- a Christian evangelical group is behind this
- the sign is trying to appeal to Christian evangelicals
Alternatively, it could be seen as an attempt to create dissent among supporters through "just asking questions": the fact that it attempts to mimic left-wing aesthetic (the black fist on a rainbow background) with a question that is fairly open (who benefits from affordable housing?) makes it seem like the intent is to get people who are uncertain about voting yes to reconsider. The Christian Fish/ Jesus Fish is a known Evangelical symbol, however: perhaps a way to inform evangelicals that they should take an anti-bond position (regardless of how they might have felt at first).
"Affordable for whom?" may be a reference to this conference, but since the bond is specifically intended to support the same aims that the conference supports, the logical connection to opposing the bond remains unclear.
