What Can We Do About Sacramento’s

Land-use Power Grab?

Answer:  Get Mad and Vote Accordingly

Economist Michael Barnes is exposing the false "housing crisis" narrative perpetuated by the state, YIMBYs, and their elected allies - see Michael's presentation. This misleading narrative is being used to justify the state's overreach into local zoning, particularly in Charter cities like San Francisco that are supposed to be independent of such state incursions.

Residents must understand the positions and track records of mayoral candidates. Who will defend our neighborhoods and reject the misleading YIMBY narrative promoted by the state and embraced by the current administration?  Consider who the YIMBYs attack most—that might indicate who will truly fight for our neighborhoods.
