Simple Question for Council Candidates: Do You Support ABAG Housing Mandates?

Original post made by Jonathan on Oct 31, 2007

I want to hear from the candidates on this one. No dancing around the issue. We, as Palo Alto citizens, have a right to know.

There are other threads where various citizens have argued about the ABAG housing issue. I would prefer to hear what the candidates have to say, on this thread.

Let us know. We know that you follow this blog. We are listening. Silence is an asnwer, in itself...but much better to hear from you directly.

What kind of answer do you think you're going to get from Council candidates? Do you think they will tell you what they *really* think, in this forum, on *this issue*?? hee, hee, hee

Anyone who does say, will get my vote. Otherwise, they will not.

Because it means money for the City in the form of grants the answer is "yes".
