Hydee Feldstein Soto, candidate for Los Angeles City Attorney 2022, and John Heath, president of the United Homeowners’ Association based in Los Angeles, describe their efforts to get solutions-based housing policy from Sacramento legislators. Feldstein Soto says, “Dictating from on high will not work.” Heath adds. “Sacramento is facilitating a massive transfer of wealth from low-income communities to Wall Street.”
Mike Griffiths, Torrance City Council member and founder of California Cities for Local Control doesn’t think state legislators set sound housing policy when they make sweeping mandates for communities they have never stepped foot in and know nothing about.
Griffiths and his all-volunteer team have recruited dozens of cities and hundreds of city council members to sign a Resolution objecting to the state’s top- down, one-size-fits-all mandates.
Susan Kirsch, founder of Catalysts, and Guy Meyer, 5-year host of Marin Cable-TV’s eclectic California Times, announce a new, six-part series of 30-minute interviews focusing on housing called “Catalysts in California Times.”
“Thousands of Californians are in the dark about Sacramento’s ambitious housing legislation that strips away local control,” says Kirsch.
