    Why does the board of supervisors even have a say in a house going up?
    A supervisor represents one district. Why are members of other districts given this power?
    Why does a board of renters get to decide what a home builder can do?

    Why do you feel that renter status precludes one from participating in politics ?

    Yeah, this never makes any sense. Without renters, the people who own the rental properties wouldn’t own them.

    What does this have to do with renters? Are the board of supervisors renters instead of home owners?

    The Board of Supervisors should be legislating, not acting as a judicial body using politics to overturn decisions made by better-informed executive bodies like the Planning or Building Commissions. The preservation groups should just let this well-flogged horse go peacefully.

    You must be kidding. Kathrin and Christina are better informed? They are far more political than even the leftist of the lefties on the supes.
