He also stressed the importance of collaboration across all government levels to tackle the housing crisis effectively. “Addressing our housing crisis requires collaboration across all levels of government to ensure every person has dignified and stable housing,” he stated. He also affirmed the commitment to continue working to ensure that California is equipped with the necessary resources to confront this housing crisis effectively.
