We need to build "below market housing" right around all of the government stooges who believe that government is imbued with some magical powers whereby they can dictate the market and ignore simple demand and supply. They seldom have to live with the results of their own actions. But the rest of us aren't so nicely insulated.
Have you ever noticed how many city managers, often the highest paying local employment in a smaller suburb, don't even live in the city they are 'managing"? Vallejo's city manager lives in Novato. He's been a city manager for several other cities lasting about five years at each. And, getting even more money each time he jumps with a lucrative contract that guarantees him that money whether he lasts or not.
They used to call this "carpetbagging" but somehow recognition of it has fallen away when it comes to stupid city councils.
