Look at the multi-billion dollar short-term vacation rental industry, including Airbnb, and the 16,000 homes this industry has removed from San Diego’s housing stock that are no longer available for residents who need a home to rent or buy, for example.
You’ve probably also seen the recent news over the Airbnb party house disasters.
These are just a few reasons why I’ve been leading the fight to enforce our local zoning regulations.
None of these houses were built or permitted for commercial use.
Turning homes into hotel rooms disrupts neighborhoods and directly impacts our housing supply. Some politicians won’t address these problems for fear of upsetting a powerful special interest.
That’s why I will keep standing up for every San Diegan who is sick and tired of politicians who aren’t strong enough to look special interests in the eye and tell them, “Enough!”
Let's get to work!
