City Visions: Who should pay for San Francisco’s homelessness crisis?

Oct 1, 2018

Should businesses be doing more to help with the housing shortage? Some San Francisco residents think so. 

Host Grace Won and guests explore the pros and cons of San Francisco’s Proposition C, a proposal to tax large businesses in order to fund housing and mental health services for the city’s most vulnerable. 

Is Prop C the answer to San Francisco’s housing and homelessness problem?  Or, will this measure drive companies and jobs out of San Francisco, as opponents fear? 

Guests:

Jennifer Friedenbach, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness and sponsor of San Francisco's Proposition C.

Heather Knight, columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle.

Jess Montejano, former senior advisor and communications director for former San Francisco Mayor and Supervisor Mark Farrell and No on C campaign spokesperson.
