Sheena Tahilramani, a candidate for District 7, agreed that young people are having trouble buying homes: “I can’t afford a house. I’m 34 years old. I can’t afford it.”
Tahilramani said she against the regulation of short-term rentals, currently being considered by the city. “One of the things we’re talking about here is a limitation of short-term rentals, such as AirBnB, what I don’t think some of the city council realize is some of us are actually utilizing that to make housing more affordable,” said Tahilramani.
