After a Year in Office, the Mayor Is Already on a Fundraising Spree


Wheeler's pro-building, pro-density policy should be popular with everyone concerned over housing prices, given that putting a lot more units on the market to address the low vacancy rates and overwhelming demand for housing is the only thing that will actually stabilize prices in the long-term. We've already seen inclusionary zoning and rent control fail in the long term in other major cities, and fail spectacularly in the short-term in Portland (9.9% increases, an increase in for-cause evictions, small-time landlords selling to owner-occupiers thus taking rental units off the market).
Wheeler is a popular mayor?
