Letter of Resignation from the Palo Alto Planning and Transportation Commission
Kate Vershov Downing

Cost of housing is 100% the reason why I will *never* accept a tech job in Silicon Valley. It is just not reasonable to me to pay over 75% of my salary for rent alone. That’s called insanity. Instead, I will watch the Boomer millionaires continue to play their politics and when the little ppl -first responders, elder care workers, etc. can no longer afford to live in Palo Alto et al. on their pennies per day jobs, perhaps the millionaire Boomers will give a damn. But I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for that particular epiphany. Fight the good fight, Kate, but I think Sisyphus probably had it easier.
