|Supervisor Susan Adams defends establishing the Marinwood Priority Development Area and placing 70% of all affordable housing for unincorporated Marin in Marinwood Lucas Valley, before skeptical residents at the June 26, 2013 Town Hall|
|Penny Pritzer, Secretary of Commerce|
I received this email this morning from a good friend in response to the Donald Trump story. Least you think this affordable housing thing is all about "working families", check out the links and see the real stories of money and power
|Banks, corporations and wealthy investors are the real winners with affordable housing.|
The driver is capitalist economics - the promise of double digit return on investment (for people who already own assets and can afford to invest). It isn't reducing GHG emissions or even providing decent housing (for the people without assets and barely enough $$ for food). Will the facts re: RHNA numbers, GHG emissions, housing options, local control, and infrastructure be enough to off-set the money, lobbyists, and power elite? If ever there were a David/Goliath battle, this is it.
