that hunger to them.'s and no doubt. i tell you who is excited is quinn cook. he is a guy who really earned his way onto this team. it is interesting for him because joe, he is getting to go against what was for him, a boyhood idol of his. >> when you think about the spurs game, tony parker, the guy that quinn cook grew up watching and idolizing, and you know you are old when the opposing team says i grew up watching video of you. >> i used to have this dvd called ankle breakers. it had a 50 minute -- 15 minute on tony. . i got my spin move from tony parker. i knew a move that he was going to do before it happened because of just how much i watched him. for him to be so good at this

hundreds of people who lost everything in a northbay wildfires last year are finding it easier to sell their lots rather than rebuild. we went back to wine country for an update on the number of
5:32 pm
property that is on the market. our reported joint is now with what he found. >> reporter: there is no doubt a plague of under insurance up here in the wine country of santa rosa. is a plague that many people believe was created by the insurance agents themselves who wanted to get as many customers as they could by lowballing them on coverage by protecting their company but leaving their customers out to dry. today in santa rosa's burned out coffee part, there is a lot more construction activity that we saw two weeks ago. but there is also a lot more for sale signs. in january, there was 112 burned lots on the market. since then, mainly developers and land speculators have bought 180 lots. >> a lot of people cannot afford to rebuild. >> reporter: this realtor and the immediate past president of the northbay association of
5:33 pm
realtors, there are now 208 lots for sale. >> that is just increasing as a lotta people cannot afford to rebuild. they are choosing to move out of the area. >> reporter: but the majority are trying to rebuild. perhaps a much smaller home due to the high construction costs, under insurance, and a lack of construction workers. >> we lost over 5000 houses, and to date, we have not had much that inventory restored. what they were talking about 250 houses completed the first year and maybe 500 the second year. that is nowhere near the capacity that we need. >> it is going to be a long time for us to rebuild. >> reporter: with so many lots for sale in the burned areas and due to the people leaving, prices for lots are eroding. >> more supply has come on because more people have come
5:34 pm
to a conclusion about what they are going to do. as result, prices are starting to pull back. >> reporter: besides not having enough insurance, you cannot rebuild if you don't have builders. >> we had one developer in the area who decided to pull out after committed to 100 lots. he backed out because he did not think you can find the skill to actually make those homes a reality. >> reporter: so it will be a far slower and spotty recovery than expected, and it will have many new faces in neighborhoods that will be very much changed. >> such a sad aftermath of those devastating fires. the city of berkeley is considering a law aimed at reducing the use of single use containers and cups. the city council is expected to discuss the proposal at their meeting tonight, which would require merchants to charge $.25 for every disposable cup
5:35 pm
or food container. the law would also require that restaurants and foods replace reusable dishes with -- plastic dishes with reusable dishes. people in san francisco would decide on a new mayor this year. ktvu invited all of the candidates in for an interview. this week, we will be introducing them to you one by one. last hour, you heard from amy farah weiss. now we will introduce you to richie greenberg. >> there are many people out there, even democrats, who are sick and tired of the left and leftward politics that is dragging our city worse and worse. >> richie greenberg hopes to be the next mayor of san francisco. the republican business consultant describes himself as a moderate in a city that he says is in a progressive decline. among his priorities is build more housing for all, increase
5:36 pm
police funding and equip officers with tasers. also, stop the flow of homeless people from out of state. he is also opposed to the status of a sanctuary city for san francisco, and his mayor would encourage local law enforcement to communicate with federal agencies. >> so many big issues are facing san francisco. the start with a housing shortage. the are families that want to stay in the city, but they cannot find affordable housing. what would you do to ease the housing crisis? >> thank you for having me here today first of all. i look at things a little bit differently as we have a housing crisis. not everyone who wants to live in san francisco should automatically have a place to be accommodated. i want to look at a more different approach to where it will take some of the pressure off of san francisco per se. we are busting at the seams and we don't have the capacity, and waiting and waiting for the builders to build is not going to solve the issue. another issue that i am looking at is that we have to be sure
5:37 pm
that whatever is built is addressing the needs of single families and i don't want to have just micro apartments built. we need units one, two, and three bedroom apartments to be able to house a family or elderly senior to have another knee, and we have to have parking as well. this is a real strong point of my platform as well. we need to take care of all of the people. we do not want to be forcing or pushing families out of sam cisco. >> another issue is street crime. i want to read a recent statistic that us all. when it comes to violent crime, san francisco has a rate 60% higher than the average in california, and 80% -- 84% than the national average. what would you do to change that? >> this is clearly an enforcement issue. enforcement means police. i am a big supporter of our police department and our men
5:38 pm
and women in uniform. i salute them, i myself and -- am an auxiliary law enforcement officer. we need more police and we are understaffed. at the current level of how many officers are active in the field was determined back in 1996. since then, we have grown quite a bit and we also need more patrol cars. the cars that are in service right now are in disrepair. so we need a concerted effort to get more funding and more police on the street. we need to be policing and more academies to get more graduates and to train them properly with tasers as well. this will help with our break- ins and home invasion robberies and violent crimes. >> a lot of people say that homelessness is the number 1 issue facing san francisco. what would you do? do you have a policy to change and help ease the homelessness problem.
5:39 pm
it is a regional problem, but specifically, let's focus on cyber cisco. >> i have a three-pronged approach and it is based first of all on that we need to concentrate on the people that are living here that are homeless. for example, we have about 7500 who are homeless. 30% came here from somewhere else. that means they were homeless in some other city or state and traveled here. i want to put the brakes on that. we need to have, for example, a summit of the regional areas that we can assist other county so that they can take care of their own homeless in their own cities and counties and not come here on the taxpayers dime. i am going to declare a state of emergency within days of me being elected. i am going to bring it fema trailers that you see after a hurricane or disaster to put those who are on the street and living on the street specifically, and bring them
5:40 pm
into the traders and get them off of the street and without hesitation, we need to do that because it is a humanitarian disaster. i will do that immediately within days of being elected. >> you are the only republican in the race. san francisco has not voted for a republican mayor and more than 50 years. right now, what is your message to get them to vote republican for you? >> we actually have to close to 40,000 registered republican voters and 150,000 no party preference. now is the time if you are ever central or right-leaning, this is a time that we can come together and stop this left and leftward drift toward the brink of disaster that we have seen from city hall. i am honored to be the gop endorsed candidate, and at this point, we just need to get the boat out and to realize you are not alone, and i am meeting so
5:41 pm
many people around me who are actually republican and republican leaning and closet republican. so this is the time. >> take you so much for joining us richie greenberg and talking with us. i want to let you know that we will be talking with all of the candidates for mayor of san francisco. tomorrow we will speak with mark leno and london breed. you can find all of our interviews on our website it is all posted on the top of local news. we go to los angeles where a woman was found dead, reportedly shot by her own son. it all started early this morning when firefighters were responding to a house fire, and quickly had to run for cover with gunshots rang out. the second government has been identified as jose ramirez. swat teams were called to the scene after ramirez barricaded himself inside the home. to make our firefighters had to

even harder for those other types of the delivery services to compete. >> reporter: amazon key is available in 37 regions across the country, including the bay area. but only prime users with certain cars with an active onstar account can use it. this mother does not like the idea of having an amazon delivery driver inside of her home, but she would consider this. >> they would deliver straight to my car? certainly! why not? i would give it a try. >> reporter: others felt strongly against the idea citing concerns about privacy and car break-ins. >> it is pushing the privacy issue a little much and by giving people access to the vehicle. if you can get into the trunk, you can get into the car. >> reporter: in car delivery is not available for underground are gated parking garages.
