Dunn Poverty Q4
We need an economic development strategy to welcome homebuilders back to the state of California (and implement it). We can plan for all the transit-oriented housing the state desires in order to satisfy climate change rules, but if builders won’t build it because of cost, regs and litigation proliferation, then there’s a problem! Small builders are gone, medium sized builders are struggling under state rules, big builders are now publicly traded and find more welcoming environments in other states.
Large employers are generous in philanthropy to non-profits and experts in reducing poverty. Keep it up. Make it part of corporate social responsibility dedication.
