Today on State of Affairs:

KQED's Marisa Lagos on the biggest challenges awaiting London Breed:

Housing, homelessness, and affordability. I know it's a common refrain in Los Angeles as well. Mayor Lee oversaw an incredible period in the city where we saw the unemployment rate drop to near zero, where we saw the median price of a home doubled to more than $1 million just in the short six or seven years. And then a lot of the middle class is being pushed out. 

I think that's going to be this core issue. When he came in it was all about jobs, now it's all about houses.
