Microblog #21: Can Housing Bridge Our Political Divide? (122 words)

This past weekend, State Senator Jennifer McClellan and Delegate Chris Peace penned a letter to the editor in the Richmond Times-Dispatch about the need for guaranteeing ample, affordable housing options throughout the commonwealth. The letter also quotes results of the first ever public opinion poll on housing conducted in Virginia, sponsored by CHACE.

Enjoy an excerpt below, and read the full letter here.

“With the November elections just ended, we thought it would be refreshing to focus on a bipartisan issue of agreement. Whether you call it workforce or affordable housing, all areas should have communities of opportunity that include a range of housing choices to meet the needs – and do not overly burden the financial resources – of middle-class families.”
