INCREASING ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING &

ADDRESSING HOMELESSNESS

It is critical that we expand affordable housing and enhance protections for renters and homeowners during this crisis.

While the Governor put a temporary moratorium on evictions, thousands of people throughout our communities will struggle to make their rent payments when the moratorium is lifted. In my city, I worked to implement a rental assistance program to help keep residents in their homes as we navigate this economic crisis. This is the type of leadership we need at the county level.

Homelessness also continues to be a crisis for our region and the economic consequences of COVID-19 are only amplifying the issue.  That’s why I led the effort in my city to enact a housing program that works to find permanent housing for those in danger of, or already experiencing, homelessness, providing rental assistance and some support services.

I will bring this same dedication to the Board of Supervisors, working tirelessly to solve our region’s housing crisis, a problem that unfortunately existed before the pandemic, but was undoubtedly made worse by it.
