Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • I would like to work on making affordable housing a higher priority in the City of Albany.
  • I would like to find a way to reach out to a broader segment of Albany residents so that more of them attend city meetings and voice their opinions about the issues that concern them.
  • I would like to see Albany residents and business owners participate more actively in recycling.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters—Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville (4)

If you are elected, what would you like to achieve during your term in office?
Respuesta de Amber Whitson:

I would like to see the city of Albany encourage more developers of low-income housing to bring their projects to our city.

I would also like to see the City perform better outreach and encourage a more vigorous dialogue between the various demographic groups in our city about the issues that we face.

What do you consider the most important issue facing the city?
Respuesta de Amber Whitson:

Housing. A shortage of affordable housing and, in the case of rent increases, a lack of communication and (in the most egregious situations) a lack of regulation.

A hard working person who has lived in Albany their whole life, and whose equally hard working parents could afford to raise them here, should not live in fear of being priced out of their own town just because they don't own their own parcel.

Question 3

How do you plan to balance the regional Planned Bay Area (ABAG/MTC) goals of Priority Development Areas (PDAs) with local needs of property owners, traffic/parking/congestion problems, and other local concerns?

No se proporcionó respuesta.
Question 4

Considering the disintegration of local infrastructure, how can the city upgrade to meet the current regulatory requirements for clean air and for clean water discharge into the Bay?
