One thought on “The race(s) are on: Candidate slate is set for city, school board election

  1. According to the Piedmont is Home website (, “There is no requirement that 587 housing units be built in Piedmont by 2031. The requirement is that the City develop a Housing Element and implement its policies and programs that allow for the construction of 587 housing units in multiple income categories. No owner of privately-owned land or publicly owned land is required to develop their property if it is not in their best interests.”

    In this context, Jeanne Solnordal’s statement that “Many voices are
    underrepresented, especially those residents who oppose the plan
    to add 587 units of affordable housing to Piedmont at a cost of
    around $850,000 per unit” is misleading because it does not accurately represent the content of the current plan. Jeanne’s statement also could be misinterpreted as suggesting that the plan would use money from the city budget to support all of the cost of this building. This also would not represent the current plan accurately.

    I hope that Jeanne made an honest mistake in her representation of Piedmont’s housing plan, but at the same time, I do not want voters to be mislead by her statement.

    Very sincerely and respectfully,

    -Chris Krenn
