They can push all they want, but the Mayor has very little to do with the cost of rental property or price of new homes.

Nonetheless, this fight is going nation wide.

Yet, another unsustainable path.

What's with this "affordable" housing crap? How about making sure the housing is habitable. We have a bunch of slumlords who rent out barely liveable shacks to people who are lucky to scrape up the security deposit. Reinstate the Housing Court AND hire inspectors to make sure each place is suitable for human beings.

I actually want less affordable housing in KC. Lets get the the riff raff out of here

Their proposals will make it more expensive for landlords to rent properties, and therefore will make housing more expensive, not less. Maybe the tenants rights folks are being paid by gentrifiers to chase the poor out of town.
