Burlingame is poised to undergo enormous changes in the next 3-5 years, especially in light of the massive 3,500-employee office park currently under construction on our Bayfront.
We need a different approach going forward if we want to address the crippling traffic on our streets and highways, the teachers deciding to leave our schools, and the record-high rents.
As councilmember, Mike will prioritize addressing:
- Affordable Housing: Rents are at record highs and the city is far behind on its affordable housing goals
- Empty Storefronts: Many small businesses in our commercial areas are struggling
- Traffic: Over the last five years, traffic has gone from annoying to unbearable
- Residential Parking: Many neighborhoods are now experiencing a parking crunch
- Schools: Each of our local schools routinely loses teachers who can't afford to live anywhere nearby
- Speeding on Local Streets: Many residential streets now feel unsafe, especially for children and seniors
