Endorsement Quote: "Having a stable and secure roof over your head is a human right we have to support collectively as a society, the absence of which is a root contributor to social and mental health problems, crime, and urban malfunction."

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections: "Renovictions and demovictions need to be regulated or banned to prevent their widespread abuse."
✔️Housing Acquisition: "We need to expand such programs, like Cooperative Not-for-profit housing, and regulate real estate market corporatization."

2. Create More ✔️Inclusionary Zoning: "Yes, provided policies are proactively implemented to prevent those zones slipping into slums."
✔️Increased Budget: "Yes. But I believe a static magic number should be replaced by a percentage according to population growth. If growth exceeds forecasts, then 1,000 houses per year may be insufficient. It probably is insufficient already, given our current housing crisis."
3. Preserve the Quality ✔️Landlord Licensing: "Landlords, especially small-scale family ones, need our support too. The housing problem is not a landlord v tenant issue. It is a financial speculation, deregulation, and corporate take-over and mismanaged development problem." ✔️Ombudsperson: "You bet your beeswax!"
