Candidates have been asked to respond to brief questionnaires regarding housing & climate action issues in Berkeley. Read their responses below!
We are a group of Berkeley neighbors who want a better city for everyone.
We know climate change is the foremost threat to the planet, and transportation is the single greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions in both Berkeley and California.
We know Berkeley's housing shortage directly contributes to these high emissions by forcing middle- and low-income workers into increasingly long and miserable commutes.
Therefore, we believe we must create more homes in Berkeley, for all income levels. This is the most environmentally sound and socially equitable solution to our shared housing and climate crises.
Our common destiny is our shared opportunity. We believe that by creating transit-rich, diverse, and walkable neighborhoods, we can be a regional leader in tackling climate change while becoming a more affordable and equitable city for ourselves and future generations.
Join us and let’s get to work!
