The Almanac just published an important opinion from Sen. Josh Becker, but there is not mention of the opinion in Palo Alto Online. Sen. Becker rightfully addressed the recent violence in Half Moon Bay. The opinion was presented as follows:

"Guest Opinion: In response to tragedy, more must be done to curb gun violence"
[link attached]

Gun violence is the salient issue but much was left unsaid. For example, a true elected leaders would also address root causes of our failing social fabric. Who was responsible for substandard housing? Who has responsibility for code enforcement in Half Moon Bay? It is more difficult to address accountability for alledged workplace injustice, but surely someone must have an opinion.

Bottom line: I propose that Half Moon Bay and San Mateo County jointly address how housing code enforcement failed. I propose that state government, specificly Sen. Becker, address the lack of state funding for the simpliest form of affordable housing in Half Moon Bay.
