Why did California’s bill to build in single-family-home neighborhoods fail? Suburban homeowners

Maybe the answer is really a question: Why does Scott Wiener say single family homes are immoral? Why is Scott Wiener proposing “solutions” that serve the rich at the expense of the majority of residents? Why is Scott Wiener proposing “solutions” that destroy the California Dream and the single biggest vehicle for the lower and middle class to build a nest egg? Why is Scott Wiener proposing “solutions” that exacerbate the income divide in California? Why is Scott Wiener proposing “solutions” that hurt, not help, the Affordability Crisis? Why does Scott Wiener have to use half-truths to promote his “solutions”? Why does Scott Wiener employ faux-grassroots organizations to make his “solutions” appear tho have broad support and to make personal and racist attacks? Why does Scott Wiener keep saying California has a 3.5 million unit housing deficit based on a flawed “study”?  Why does Scott Wiener serve his big money special interest contributors rather than his constituents? Why did Scott Wiener “play” true equity groups while promoting this anti-equity legislation?

Brand is part of a group of local officials and neighborhood activists that is considering filing a statewide ballot initiative for 2020 to amend the California Constitution and ensure planning and zoning rules remain the sole responsibility of cities and counties.

“Why should we have city councils if we can’t control the type of development we have in our town?” he said. “We should just dissolve the city and let [the state] handle it.”
