Cory is a current Palo Alto City Council member and believes Palo Alto should lead the region in developing housing and transportation solutions to address our severe jobs-housing imbalance. In his first city council term, he fought for renter protections like relocation assistance and introduced legislation to reduce zoning regulations to promote development of housing for all income levels. Cory also spearheaded changes to ADU policies to enable Palo Altans to say YES to housing, literally in their backyards.
