Exclusive Interview with GOP Gubernatorial Candidate John Cox on Housing

October 15, 2018 - 5:36 pm

(KNX 1070) -- The GOP candidate for California governor tells KNX In-Depth that the road to solving the state's housing crisis is paved with building more affordable housing through lessened regulation.

Listen to our full one hour interview with John Cox tonight at 8 p.m. on KNX In Depth. 

Cox is a lawyer, CPA, and real estate developer. He owns apartment buildings in other states but notably not in California where he says it's too expensive to build -- which in turn drives up the cost for renters and buyers alike. 

He rejects the notion of extending rent control and says stringent environmental regulations often get in the way of bringing down the cost of housing here. 

KNX In Depth has an invite out to Democratic candidate Gavin Newsom, but no date has been set.
