      but I know he currently has his "Zen mansion" in the Oakland hills. He could probably fit a lot of people in there, but my feeling is it's just him and his wife.

      Do you have any knowledge of his pre-mayoral digs?

          if a prominent politician were to choose to live in a cohousing or other communal living type situation. I could definitely see Jerry do it, if anyone. At Doyle Street it ended up working the other way around, with an resident getting elected to the City Council.
