Jake Tonkel supports policies that would essentially end single-family zoning, allowing large apartment buildings to be constructed right next to our homes. And what’s worse, Tonkel supports these changes without any meaningful say from the neighbors directly impacted.
In fact, The Mercury News wrote that one of the clearest differences in the race for city council is that Tonkel will end single-family zoning as we know it – and Dev Davis will preserve it.
Homeowners have a right to be concerned about residential towers being built literally next door right up to their lot lines. And we should all be concerned about new housing without adequate transit, infrastructure and other necessary investments.
Councilmember Dev Davis has shown that there are many ways we can build enough affordable housing — championing several projects that will house hundreds of our homeless families-- without having to destroy our neighborhoods are so many ways we can build enough affordable housing – without having to destroy our neighborhoods. But once again – Jake Tonkel just isn’t listening.
We need leaders at City Hall who are focused on working with neighbors to address our housing crisis, not against us.
By November 3, Vote NO on Jake Tonkel.
