San Jose City Council voted Tuesday night to greenlight the sale of 10 acres of public land, clearing the way for a Google campus adjacent to the Diridon Station. Supporters of the project say it will bring an estimated 25,000 jobs to the city. We’ll hear about the new campus, which opponents fear will lead to rent increases and aggravate the city’s housing shortage.

Guests:

Teresa Alvarado, San Jose director, SPUR

Sam Liccardo, mayor, City of San Jose

Tonya Mosley, Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, KQED News

Sandy Perry, president, Affordable Housing Network of Santa Clara County
