Monterey Penninsula Election Forum Part 2 Recap
Monterey Penninsula Candidates Share Their Housing Strategies
Thank you to all the candidates who participated at our Monterey Peninsula Election Forum!
We heard some exciting ideas for addressing our critical affordable housing shortages in Monterey County District 4, and the cities of Del Rey Oaks, Marina, and Seaside. Candidates also had the chance to clarify their positions on key policy tools that would be at their disposal if elected to local office. There was particularly rich conversation about the prioritization of water for affordable housing once supply becomes available and the use of land on the former Fort Ord site. A special thank you to our co-host, Katy Castagna, President and CEO of United Way Monterey County. Her leadership on ADU development and emergency rental assistance is critical increasing affordable housing and keeping our communities housed across the Peninsula. View the event slides here.
