Families up and down the I-5 corridor are being pushed out as they can no longer afford to live in the communities they have built. I know firsthand what it is like for the thousands of families in Washington living paycheck to paycheck and agonizing over whether or not they will be able to afford next month’s rent.
  • The housing affordability crisis directly impacts and intersects with the most marginalized members of our community, and this is something that we as legislators have the capacity to address. By dramatically expanding affordable housing programs, we can improve the welfare of so many families in our community.
  • The Mandatory Housing Affordability program has created valuable opportunities and options for Washingtonians, but it isn’t enough. We need to put more emphasis into making sure that people have a sufficient sense of job security to begin with, so that one missed paycheck won’t send a family onto the street.
