1: A national poll in May 2020 found that 78% of the public believes our elected leaders are not putting enough attention on people’s need for help to pay for their housing during the coronavirus outbreak. What do you believe is the role of government in ensuring everyone has access to housing?
Housing is a basic human right. Government at all levels—city, county, state, and federal—have the responsibility to ensure safe, decent, accessible, and affordable housing for all. At the state level, this means ensuring 500 million dollars of bonding; expansion of the housing trust fund; and proper regulation of housing matters.
