Letter writer and former Foster City mayor Linda Koelling nailed it with her recent letter, “Stop misleading housing bills.” Ms. Koelling details the numerous deceptions with SB 9 and SB 10 and why these two bills are simply bad policy.

Ms. Koelling’s last sentence in her letter asks the rhetorical question, “who are our leaders really representing?” I would add these are our representatives not leaders. We elect people to represent us, not lead us; frequently showering them with lavish praise and obscenely rich benefits but some of these representatives lose their way along the journey.

No on SB 9 and SB 10.

David, thank you. Interesting to note that the SF Chronicle is trying to mock the opponents of these bills. Where has objective journalism gone? I would have thought that after the biased anti-Trump reporting most media would start with a clean slate. I am still waiting.


It’s great to see people like John, Linda and David strike out against SB9 and SB10. What a travesty by the state elected officials who should be representing the best interest of all Californians. Using common sense and logic does not seem to be the rule of day in Sacramento.
