SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee may not be able to count Senator Dianne Feinstein among his backers for his re-election campaign.
I had a chance to sit down with Sen. Feinstein and she said she had some concerns about the direction of the city she once served as mayor herself. While on one hand, Lee’s jobs policy has stimulated the economy by bringing tech companies like Twitter in by offering tax breaks. But Feinstein, who wrote an editorial in the San Francisco Chronicle, said it could only go so far.
She warned of the recently-passed Airbnb legislation and how she thinks it will negatively affect the city’s zoning laws by allowing short-term rentals in residential neighborhoods.
