Rent control no fix for housing crisis

The biggest problem facing California is housing affordability. Rent and home prices are so high that middle-income and low-income households alike often struggle to pay for shelter.

Does my choice of housing define me?

To be honest, I had some negative reactions myself when I first considered Rancho Benicia. I thought about my friends in Moraga, Walnut Creek, San Francisco and Idaho and felt some misgivings about what they’d say. Good friends of mine, who had lived near me in the condo, moved to Rancho Benicia last year. They worked with an interior designer, and had the entire inside redone in their style. It’s lovely. They refer to their place as a “tindominimum.”
