Our housing is too expensive, and our roads need repair.
California cannot write its comeback story without making affordable home prices and a well-maintained transportation network a top priority. But under Gavin Newsom, we have to pay more for housing as prices continue to skyrocket. And he let our streets and freeways deteriorate despite charging Californians one of the highest gas taxes in the nation.
As mayor, Kevin Faulconer prioritized quality housing and streets, not as nice-to-haves but as essential building blocks of our communities. He led the state with reforms to make housing less expensive and repaired an unprecedented number of roads without raising taxes. He overhauled backward government regulations and fees that increased home prices. He set records for road repair, fixing half of San Diego’s streets in just six years. And he put communities first by building more parks, libraries, fire stations, and clean water systems as part of the largest infrastructure investment in San Diego history.
As governor, Kevin Faulconer will work so you can afford a home and spend less time in traffic. He will make sure your tax dollars are put toward keeping our roads smooth and safe. He will take a red pen to outdated rules that drive up the price of apartments and houses. And he will work to create affordable housing so that our children and workforce can continue to call California home.
