Re: “Tuesday’s Briefing: East Bay Shelter Houses Two Girls Separated from Parents at Border; Cannabis Dispensaries Pull Products Because of #PermitPatty

You state two cannabis dispensaries are pulling the Treatwell product but then you only name one - Magnolia. What is the other dispensary?

Re: “Friday’s Briefing: Bill to Reinstate Rent Control Defeated; Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant to Shut Down

Story #1 as an incorrect statement. Buildings built in Oakland AFTER 1983 are exempt from rent control (not before 1983, as you state). And that's not due to Costa Hawkins, that's due to regulations decided by the city of Oakland. Costa Hawkins states that any building built AFTER 1995 must be exempt from rent control, but if a city decides they want to go back even further, they can.

Also, your statement that "[the issue] could be headed to the November ballot unless the legislatures can reach a compromise" isn't very likely. Legislators only have until Feb. 16 to introduce new bills.

Maybe it's time for the tenant's organizations to stop with the "all or nothing" approach and start to talk compromise with the landlords.

Re: “How to Solve Berkeley's Housing Crisis? Two Leading Mayoral Candidates Don't See Eye-to-Eye

Yet both co-authored a tax measure that would give developers a break from a 166% tax increase for 12 years. Go figure. Neither candidate has it wrapped up when it comes to dealing with our housing crisis.
