There’s a fundamental concern that our City College students are facing – housing and food insecurity. It’s also true that City College impacts our local housing market – and not just on the Mesa. Yes, we need more housing for students and for staff, teachers, police, firefighters, construction workers, public and private employees. The question is how much and who pays for it. To address these concerns, a comprehensive study on the realities of City College students’ lives is being conducted. As your Councilmember, I will find a solution by working with the data and listening to input from the students and community – responding in an appropriate and humanitarian manner. This way all who live, study, and work in our community have a safe and affordable place to call home, and quality food to eat.
