Endorsement Explanations

State-level offices

Shelly Masur

State Senate District 13

Shelly Masur for California State Senate District 13

Peninsula for Everyone unanimously endorses Redwood City Vice Mayor Shelly Masur to replace Jerry Hill in Senate District 13. Masur would bring a wealth of experience to Sacramento, having served well over a decade as an elected local official on the Redwood City School Board and City Council. She is a dedicated public servant, an excellent legislator, a mom, and a renter. 

Shelly Masur is a champion for housing and advocates for policy solutions that meet the scale and urgency of our conjoined climate and housing crises. Vice Mayor Masur advocates for dismantling racist exclusionary zoning practices and was the only candidate to SB50. She advocates for a 3 P’s approach to addressing our housing crisis: production of homes at all income levels, preservation of existing affordable housing, and protection of tenants. 

On the production front, Masur supports higher heights and density near transit stations and making corresponding investments to improve public transit service. She also advocates for allowing more families to access high-opportunity areas by legalizing diverse and more affordable housing types (duplex, triplex, quadplex, more!). 


California State Senate District 11

Scott Wiener for California State Senate District 11

Our members in Northern San Mateo County are proud to be represented by Scott Wiener, a bold legislator who has spearheaded efforts to build more homes near transit and opportunity-rich areas like the peninsula. His bill SB35 enabled residential developments meeting standards for on-site affordability to qualify for a streamlined approval process, resulting in new affordable homes getting approved at record speeds. While we were disappointed by the recent demise of the landmark bill SB50, we’re excited to see what Senator Wiener does next.


California State Assembly District 22

Kevin Mullin for California State Assembly District 22

Assemblymember Kevin Mullin is a problem solver who consistently supports affordable housing. In addition to voting for bills we’ve supported in the state legislature, he is also willing to advocate for housing locally. Mullin pushed for public land to be used for affordable housing when a mostly market-rate development was proposed for the Peninsula Healthcare District. He also advocated on behalf of a long-resisted 100% affordable development in Moss Beach.
