CITY AND COUNTY CANDIDATES RESPOND TO HOMELESSNESS & HOUSING QUESTIONNAIRE

The four organizations [SacACT; League of Women Voters, Sacramento County; Sacramento Housing Alliance and the Sacramento Regional Coalition to End Homelessness] came together to ask the 19 candidates for city council and county board of supervisors key questions on two interrelated crises in our community: homelessness and affordable and accessible housing.

Our email to the candidates was on April 4, 2022 with several email reminders, with the deadline of April 25, 2022.  

13 of the 19 candidates responded [68%] with only one of three incumbents, Supervisor Kennedy, responding.  Councilmember Jennings and Supervisor Serna did not respond.

The link to their unedited responses is below.

If you are homeless, please call 211 for help.

NOTE:  Given the lack of funding, we were not able to create a 2020 edition - but the resources in the Guide  - while there are a few changes - should still help you find the resources you need
