Our region is facing an affordability crisis. Housing costs are through the roof, pushing more and more families farther from the neighborhoods they love. And this problem is made even worse by transit systems that simply don’t work for many.
If Bay Area residents can’t easily get to work, if teachers, nurses and firefighters can’t live in the communities they serve, if rapid growth without smart planning leaves us with just condominium towers and freeways – what kind of future does that mean for our kids?
Jane Kim is running for State Senate because we need to lift up our communities and have cities that work for all of us. I will keep fighting hard for more affordable housing, for developers to pay more to fund public transit, for strong protections for tenants.
She joined former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Lateefah Simon, California State University Trustee and candidate for District 7 BART Board Director, and David Talbot, best selling author and founder/former editor-in-chief of Salon, to hear how we can improve housing, transportation and urban planning to make our cities work for every family.
But we have to keep fighting and we want to continue to hear your ideas on how we can improve our city and our state.
Join the campaign and help us fight to protect our city.
