now. you've probably received your ballot in the mail for june pri. gavin newsom is facing re-election abc 7 news anchor list crates has more on the race and a look at one of the bay replace him. she's in the newsroom list. hi, dan. yes, governor newsom is expected to win his reelection. to leave but issues around crime and safety and the homelessness and drug crisis are front of mine right now for many californians bay area author michael schellenberger has thrown his hat into the ring. he's hoping that by talking about these issues. he'll be able to break through. as californians receive their ballots for the june primary, they'll find a long list of shot candidates hoping to take on governor gavin newsom for the state's top spot among them michael shellenberger an environmentalist turned homeless advocate and author of the book san francisco why progressives ruined cities? an interview with abc 7 news this morning the democrat turned
4:16 pm
independent told us he's running for governor to put an end to the homelessness and drug crisis across the state. you're running as a no party preference candidate. how would you describe your politics? truly independent. i mean there's certainly some things i share with democrats. there's certainly some things i share with republicans the basic strategy that i believe we need to follow to solve. the homeless crisis is the same one. they've done in europe including another one. it's in portugal schullenberger. is plan includes creating a centralized statewide psychiatric and addiction care system dubbed calcite. this would replace the current county-based system. he would also enforce the statewide ban on public camping to get people off the streets immediately. we do have a camping ban in san francisco and most southern california cities. we need to enforce that and we also need to enforce laws against public defecation public drug use public drug dealing those things are simply not compatible with having a livable walkable city. we asked him what that would mean for a place like san francisco's tenderloin.
4:17 pm
your policy would be anybody who's camping out there on the street is breaking the law. correct? you can be arrested. yes, and then you can go to jail. you can go live with a family member you go into a shelter or you can go into a treatment program. that's right. that's right. and again being arrested is not the same thing as being incarcerated. we can arrest people all the time. outputting them in jail or prison so they might get a court sense or a court date, but certainly there's be some consequence for breaking the laws because it turns out that when you don't enforce laws people don't follow them. it's unclear if schellenberger's proposal would even be poss. all critics point out there are ethical and legal concerns around mandating services, but schellenberger believes it's time to take a more hardline stance on these issues if the state wants to see any improvement the cost of living in california is outrageously high we should demand from this high cost of living these high taxes safe streets safe cities. now as for other issues
4:18 pm
schellenberger says he is pro-abortion rights supports gun control laws and supports increasing the minimum wage. on climate change she supports increasing nuclear energy and that includes keeping diablo canyon california's last nuclear power plant open as for as chances in the june primary. he's also up against the endorsed candidate brian dahl the two top people with the most votes in june will then face off in november in the newsroom liz croix abc 7 news. alright liz. thank you. a judge has ruled that california's law requiring women on corporate boards is unconstitutional the law required boards to have up to female directors the judge said that violated the right to equal treatment the conservative group judicial watch challenged the law claiming. it was illegal to enforce a law. that violates the equal protection clause of the california constitution. well after a cool start. it seems that the regular spring services resuming kristen. that's right. those temperatures are going to be rising right mike. absolutely by the time we get to the weekend.
4:19 pm
will threaten a few records really? yeah, it's gonna be pretty warm stretch for us in the seven day forecast. good afternoon. let's take a look at what happened today about the same same thing as yesterday temperatures cool as seabreeze roll through all of our neighborhoods, but it was enhanced by a dry cold front this morning and look at these gusts 46 miles per hour. hold on to the hats the steering wheels. everything in san francisco 38 and sfo to 25 in hayward. 15 that livermore 20 at napa and this is almost a due west win. so what that does is it pushes the wind into our inland east bay neighborhoods where the temperature right now in places like san ramon is 61 degrees. you have that west wing go right up crow canyon, but you go up about 10-15 miles and it's 75 right now in concord. so we have some serious microclimates going on in our inlet east bay neighborhoods. you can say the same for san francisco 57 to down the mountain view about 71, but that's a little bit wider spread. right now in vallejo. all right. these winds are going to continue through the evening and overnight hours and it's our
4:20 pm
northwest our north south bridges the carquinas bridge the benicia bridge and the golden gate bridge is going to be most comfortable to that. this is what it does to our temperatures. we're already starting off cooler temperatures barely 60 at 7 o'clock and then falling into the low to mid 50s with that breeze out there in the field a little bit cooler than that so dress appropriately. all right, let's talk about what to expect. the head warmer than average afternoons away from the coast all seven days. it will still be breezy through the afternoon and evening hours at least through friday and that fire danger remember that increases friday. also, here's a look at your cloud cast and those stubborn low clouds on the peninsula coast, especially san mateo county coast there. we have some high clouds rolling through right now. those are going to exit off to the east while those low clouds you can see in our cloud cast will spill across and fill up parts of the bay south of the bay bridge, but not nearly as widespread as the cloud cover we had this morning. so look at that by the time we get into the afternoon hours everybody's sunny. let's see how the temperatures respond. well wake up tomorrow morning the mid 40s to around 50 pretty close to where we were this
4:21 pm
morning. but tomorrow afternoon. look at this 10 to 15 degrees. warmer with mid upper 70s in the south bay. we'll have upper 60s to low 70s on the peninsula still cool with the coast mid-upper 60s there but mid-60s in downtown at south san francisco. we'll go from the 50s. this lacosta mid 60s in the north bay coast so a little milder there, but look at the valleys anywhere from 75 in pellu to 85 in santa rosa along the east bay shore around 72 about 75 degrees and as we move into the east bay valleys, we'll still have a little coolness hanging around san ramon in pleasanton in the mid-dupper seventies everybody else in the low to mid 80s. here's my accuweather 7-day forecast even warmer temperatures, especially for the bay in inland wednesday. we jump up about six degrees another dry. cold front will knock us down a little bit thursday and friday, but we're still warmer. average and then look at these temperatures take off and remember the high fire danger spilling into saturday it goes away but sunday and monday near record warmth 80s and 90s, dan. wow. all right, here we go. thanks mike caltrans broke ground today on a project that

4:30 pm
homelessness is on the rise in alameda county. that's according to the area's latest homeless population count a total of 9,747. people were found to be experiencing homelessness in the county. that's a jump of 22% from the previous count in 2019, alameda county homeless care and coordination says the cost of housing continues to be a major cause rents in alameda county have gone up 9% since 2019 officials say homelessness could have been even higher without some measures that were taken during the pandemic we also saw an influx of prevention. and an eviction moratorium that we believe really saved off a much more dramatic increase in homelessness. the majority of those experiencing homelessness were either living in tents or their vehicles alameda county saw a 53% jump in people living in shelters. san francisco got a much different result from its bi-annual homeless count since
4:31 pm
2019 when the last count was done the overall. of homeless people in san francisco dropped by three and a half percent more importantly the number of homeless people living on the street dropped by 15 percent at the same time, san francisco. saw an 18 percent increase in people staying in shelters at corresponds to a jump in the number of sheltered beds available now joining me to discuss. this is abc 7 news insider film material phil always great to see you santa clara county has the highest number of homeless. and for the first time that number tops 10,000 in san francisco. homelessness is down 3.5% since 2019 as i said that seems counterintuitive from what we sort of see do those numbers seem accurate to you know, they do dan but you have to remember that santa clara county is much larger than san francisco, although we pay a lot of attention to san francisco in part because it's so easy to see but santa clara county has a huge population twice that of san francisco and the homeless there are more spread out they're tougher to find but they
4:32 pm
are in big big. numbers especially in san jose. it's very typical problem for them to manage because in san francisco one of the advantages is you can see them they're there you can deal with it in santa clara and other counties. it's much more spread out. interesting now san francisco and sonoma county are the only in the bay area that saw a decrease what's making a difference in those sonoma the the increase in decreases in some of these counties like napa and sonoma are small because they're small counties and they don't have the numbers in san francisco. i would say it's the attention that's being paid for too the problem. it's got a tremendous amount of pressure here because it affects everything from tourism to the downtown office workers. lost the board and plus the population is pretty tired of what they're seeing. so what san francisco was able to do largely with the help of the feds in the state was remember put about 2,600 people off the streets and into empty hotels that were shut down because of the covid virus shut down so they were able to make a
4:33 pm
very quick change rather than building affordable housing for the homeless. they just took over pre-existing the state's going to be trying to do that with its project home key across the state with billions. hundreds of millions of dollars to revamp motels that have not been used and turned them into homeless shelters, but it doesn't come cheap down the price tag for building these new. is about 300,000 per unit and that's prohibitive. so we've got to come up with new ways to house them and not everybody in their own place with a toilet and their own kitchen those hotels. it's a group living situation not very popular with homeless advocates, but as they seen in san francisco it can get you off the streets at least the people that want to get off the streets, right? and of course are some that for one reason or another do not seem to want to give up that freedom of being on the street. let's go to the east bay for a second fill the homeless numbers in alameda and contra costa went up significant 22% and 35% respectively did the problem
4:34 pm
just migrate across the bay. no, i think the problem came across not across the bay, but just throughout the bay, you know, dan any time in the east bay where you find a free way these days especially around oakland berkeley richmond that quarter you find a homeless encampments under them. some of them are the size of just full-blown neighborhoods. and so what we have here is a migrating into those areas contra costa county, you know, it was interesting when they were talking about their you know, one of the supervisors pointed out that it takes, you know, a wage of thirty seven dollars even you know think about getting an apartment in contra costa county these days. these people are so far from that. this is what we're seeing people in rvs people. cars people just laid out under overpasses like that. bay area wide the problem has gotten worse, although not as bad as people had thought it might get but we're still talking about something like 30,000 throughout the bay area then that is like saying the
4:35 pm
entire population of pleasant hill is living in tents like that out there somewhere. yeah, that's basically it in perspective. right phil. thanks phil material. thank you. biden administration announced a plan to make housing more affordable particularly for first-time homeowners and renters being impacted by high inflation. a plan will expand federally backed financing focus on building and preserving rental housing and started test program to fund. action of tiny homes the biden administration also plans to work the with the private sector to address supply chain challenges and build the most new homes in any year since 2006 the controversy over how much or how little you should bathe is back in the news now it's expanding to how often you should wash your hair before is next.
