We can make significant strides in alleviating the affordability crisis by building more housing at all levels. As mayor, I will implement Mayor Lee’s commitment to build 5,000 new units per year. Particularly housing for low and middle income residents. Providing more middle-income housing will enable our teachers, families, and first responders to live in the city where they work and remove an enormous source of stress from their daily lives
We need to build housing and expand public transit with a coordinated and intelligent strategy. We must be open to building new housing by prioritizing density over raising height limits on new construction. My housing priorities are:
- Keep Mayor Lee’s pledge - Build over 5000 homes per year.
- Build affordable housing for teachers, families, and workers.
- Ensure development and new transit lines go hand and hand.
