Assembly District 15

AD15 covers the East Bay shoreline cities, from Oakland north. In the June primary I recommended Buffy Wicks, in no small part because of her position on Costa-Hawkins. While every other candidate said they wanted to repeal it, Wicks said she would rather modify it with a rolling cut-off date. I found this to be a more realistic position.

Since then, to my surprise, an initiative for full repeal of Costa-Hawkins qualified for the ballot as Proposition 10. I have asked Wicks if this means her position on repeal vs. reform has now changed. She has not replied, not to me nor to anyone else asking this rather obvious question.

So, while I still recommend her for AD15, my support is less than full-throated.
