Councilman Scott Sherman has been in the middle of some heated debates recently. We asked him to come into the podcast studio to talk about them — everything from the failed signature-gathering effort to put a measure on the ballot that would have increased hotel taxes to the stunning loss the city took at the California Supreme Court recently on a previous ballot measure to reform pensions.

On that one, Sherman thinks the city should appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

On vacation rentals, Sherman explained why he thinks Airbnb and other providers are right on to send the Council’s new rules [1] to a referendum.

“The reason I’m so passionate about this one is I’m just a property rights guy. I really believe that property rights, that’s one of the foundational pillars of our Constitution. Without that, we don’t have freedom. We don’t have liberty,” he said.
