As a member of Susan Kirsch’s Catalysts for Local Control group, I would like to comment on her approach to fighting for the cause of local housing control.

First, people of all political stripes are welcome to join. Second, ad hominen attacks are not broached. Third, all points of view are entertained. Fourth, our Monday 5 p.m. meetings are conducted in a freewheeling group Zoom setting. We bandy about the latest headlines regarding housing, state appointments and federal politics as they relate to California.

The group also interested in tangential subjects, including the theft of more than $20 billion from the state employment department and the lack of transparency regarding state Legislature billing procedure. We discuss the lack of water to cover the 3,300,000 state housing numbers being required prior to 2030.

If you would like to see what we are all about, go to
