Should the three out candidates for supervisor seats in Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Mateo counties be elected, they plan to advance various proposals to address their jurisdictions' housing needs, from building more units near transit stations to backing developments aimed at LGBTQ seniors.The trio of supervisorial candidates laid out their plans in the questionnaires the Bay Area Reporter sent them, which also asked them how they would protect tenants unable to pay their rent during the COVID-19 pandemic from being evicted.

All three races are on the June 7 primary, where if no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote then the top two vote-getters will compete for the seat on the November ballot.Gay Pleasant Hill City Councilmember Ken Carlson is seeking the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors' open District 4 seat, which spans the cities of Concord, Pleasant Hill, Clayton, and parts of Walnut Creek.

I will continue support and prevent evictions allowing tenants time to find jobs and recover financially from the pandemic," Carlson told the B.A.R.Vying to become the first known LGBTQ member of his county board, Carlson pointed to his support of three specific projects for low-income/affordable housing in Pleasant Hill.
