Letter: BMR housing benefits the working middle class

The Almanac did a good job of providing the list of occupations for those who qualify to live in BMR units — the working middle class. The Almanac provided education and knowledge to the Menlo Park communities, especially for the one anonymous "MP Citizen" who wrote (on the Town Square forum) a very naive and stereotyped remark.

The "MP Citizen" wrote: "Keep low income trash out of Sharon Heights. Put them in East Menlo Park where they belong. People who don't have the ability or work ethic to live in a nice neighborhood shouldn't be given handouts."

The housing commissioner also clarified the difference between BMR (below market rate) and affordable housing. This was important.
