Episode Notes

A chat with Sonja Trauss and Theo Ellington, candidates to represent SoMa, Dogpatch, Bayview and other east-side neighborhoods that together are building 80% of San Francisco's new housing.

Sonja, who regular listeners know by now, catches us up on her campaign. She blows our minds with the stats on where new housing is concentrated, how she hopes to change that to allow Affordable Housing everywhere, and her plans to wage war on cars for safer District 6 streets.

Then (starting at 23:44) Theo tells us about his experiences growing up in the Bayview, his plans to better connect District 10, build more housing and push for development equity citywide, as well as his lawsuit over the discovery of radium 50 yards from his Shipyard home.
