So I spend a fair chunk of my free time at Berkeley city council meetings speaking for more housing. Or arguing with friends and relatives who are NIMBYs (despite what they would have you believe). Or writing op-eds:
- A mayoral candidate wrote an op-ed in the Daily Cal. So I wrote a response. Another person wrote an epic response to me, which is quite impressive in that it manages to encapsulate all manor of privileged NIMBYism and terrible carbon math into just a few hundred words.
- Governor Brown has an excellent plan to increase the amount of housing (including affordable housing) by streamlining the housing approval process statewide. The same mayoral candidate opposes it. So I wrote another op-ed, this time for Berkeleyside.
