Free, online, and open to the general public, this forum will be hosted by the SV@Home Action Fund, Palo Alto Forward, and the Palo Alto Renters Association.

During this forum, candidates for Palo Alto City Council will answer questions about their plans to tackle the housing crisis. Please register today and join us for this educational event. The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022.

All candidates have been invited: Alex Comsa, Brian Hamachek, Lisa Forssell, Ed Lauing, Julie Lythcott-Haims, Doria Summa, and Vicki Veenker.

Our regional and statewide housing crisis is multi-layered — from housing production to renter protections, from homelessness to preserving affordable housing, and intersecting with transportation, climate change, and equity. Many policies responsible for the crisis began at the city level, and that is where solutions begin as well. Please join us to learn more about each candidate’s ideas, experiences, and plans for the future of housing in Palo Alto.


Live Mandarin and Spanish interpretation will be provided for this event.
