'Gimme Shelter': Newsom falls far short on his big housing promises

Gov. Gavin Newsom came into office four years ago with some of the biggest promises on housing imaginable.

The state would build 3.5 million new homes by 2025, a quintupling of California’s average annual housing production. And his effort to address the state’s housing affordability crisis would be akin to the Marshall Plan, the U.S.’ multibillion-dollar campaign to rebuild Western Europe after World War II.

Now, as Newsom campaigns for a second term in office, how did he do? On this episode of “Gimme Shelter: The California Housing Crisis Podcast,” we evaluate Newsom’s record on housing and homelessness. We found that while the governor has prioritized housing issues more than his predecessors in office, he’s fallen far short of his goals.

Gimme Shelter,” a biweekly podcast that looks at why it’s so expensive to live in California and what the state can do about it, features Liam Dillon, who covers housing affordability issues for the Los Angeles Times, and Manuela Tobías, housing reporter for CalMatters.
