Former Berkeley Mayor & State Assemblymember

Greg Magofna will provide the leadership and partnership with both City Council and city staff that is needed to forge good policy. He will stand up for the Downtown area and its constituents, particularly people struggling to afford Berkeley. District 4 deserves a representative who shows up, values evidence over ideology, and can help the City address our housing crisis. Lori Droste

Greg earned his endorsement because of his deep experience with the city advancing strategies to tackle climate change, housing, and transportation.  We are impressed with his focus on promoting bicycle transit via bike safety strategies; his plan to deploy electric vehicle charging for existing buildings; and his emphasis on avoiding local displacement by pushing for new affordable housing in all parts of the city.

Magofña is pro-tenant and he understands that in the era of climate change, we desperately need more housing in urban areas near transit to help curb suburban sprawl.
