California Election 2022: Lieutenant Governor’s Voter’s Guide

Kounalakis said if re-elected, creating more affordable housing would be a priority, calling the current shortage of options the No. 1 factor contributing to the state’s homelessness crisis.

Infrastructure would also be a priority, she said, adding that first responders and teachers must be able to afford to live close to where they work for communities to thrive.

“I know the answer to California’s housing crisis is to build more affordable homes for California families. Being able to afford a house is important for all families,” she said. “As Lieutenant Governor, creating more affordable housing and strengthening our state’s infrastructure will be a priority. We must continue to invest in our roads, highways, bridges, transit hubs and waterways. Building more affordable homes – and investing in the infrastructure that supports them – creates well-paying jobs and boosts our economy.

Underwood Jacobs lists “reforms to really solve homelessness” as a priority on his campaign website. She called homelessness in California “out of control.”

“Providing help to those in need is necessary; however, if individuals are unwilling to accept the help offered, we cannot let them ruin parks, ecologically sensitive areas and public spaces like streets,” she said.
