Jane Kim California State Senate Dist 11
I watched Jane Kim at the San Francisco Crissy Field Bernie rally and she rocked it!
I was supposed to march with her in the SF Gay Pride Parade but was a little busy launching a website
Creating More Affordable Housing – Jane Kim knows that this region won’t be the same if many of our residents are pushed out because of high prices. She is leading the charge to develop more affordable housing for middle class and low-income families. She spearheaded the negotiations with the Giants that lead to an increase in affordable housing in their new development – raising the threshold from 33% to 40% – and set a new standard for city-supported projects. She’s currently pushing to study whether that standard is workable for the new Treasure Island development, potentially paving the way for hundreds more affordable housing units. Jane knows that as the need for affordable housing increases – 40 is the new 30.
Establishing a Police Substation on 6th Street – Under her leadership, Jane Kim was able to deliver a 6th Street police substation for the community. The new 6th Street Safety Hub has provided a physical center for SFPD foot patrols and service providers to launch an effective community outreach, stabilization and crime prevention campaign that has already improved neighborhood safety and cleanliness. In addition, Jane led the reauthorization and expansion process for the Central Market Community Benefit District, ensuring its enhanced street cleaning and Community Guides extended down Sixth Street into our South of Market alleyways.
Protecting Tenants – Supervisor Jane Kim is fighting to expand affordable housing and tenant protections. In 2013, when tenants in the Mid-Market corridor were threatened with eviction in the largest eviction since the International Hotel in 1977, she and her office worked closely with tenants, the Department of Building Inspection and the Planning Department to develop creative solutions to keep them in their homes. Most recently, Jane successfully pushed passage of bold new tenant protections to crack down on frivolous and profit-incentivized evictions, including barring rent increases or evictions solely for the addition of a roommate, a process for tenants to cure minor violations before an eviction can be pursued and ensuring the availability of multi-lingual guides for tenant resources.
