“Housing 2022”


Rishi Kumar

  • An independent member of the Saratoga City Council, re-elected with the most votes in 64 years of city history.
  • Candidate for U.S. Congress District 16 to replace Anna Eshoo.
  • Rishi and his wife, both high-tech industry professionals, raised their two boys and found their American dream in Saratoga. They also discovered deep joy in giving back, solving the problems of their community and helping to better people's lives.

Some of the questions to be discussed

  • Cities throughout the Bay Area are facing the State deadline to identify housing sites for the upcoming RHNA cycle. How should City Councils respond?
  • How should we respond to the State Audit that discredits the work of HCD.and their RHNA methodology?
  • As in previous years, state legislators are producing more housing bills. Which ones should constituents be watching and what can they do?
  • What is the nexus between outsider investment money and affordable housing?

There will be time for audience Q&A.
