Tell Your Story

Find out what Alameda County residents are saying about the proposed Regional Housing Bond.

“This whole concept is GREAT!! It’s been too long in coming. My parents’ mortgage was under $300 for a five-bedroom home. My first studio apartment cost the same as their mortgage per month. My current one-bedroom apartment costs a little under $2000, for which I am grateful, but it’s telling. Everything costs too much. You know you’ll never get ahead unless you leave the state. I don’t want to do that. California holds my roots. The Bay Area is my home.”
