‘Rich, white, anti-housing men’: Los Gatos planning commissioner censured for ‘divisive language’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Los Gatos Town Council censured a planning commissioner for using “divisive language” in a letter to the state, in which she said “rich, white, anti-housing men” organized the referendum on the town’s plan for future growth.

Council voted unanimously Feb. 15 to censure Commissioner Kylie Clark, an action that serves as a formal disapproval of her comments.

Clark emailed the state Department of Housing and Community Development last November to notify leaders of the referendum on the town’s 2040 General Plan, and said it was “paid for and passed by the rich, white, anti-housing men in our town.”

Members of the public complained to town staff about Clark’s email, saying it negatively impacted the town during the Housing Element process, represented the town poorly and used “racist” and “biased” language.'
