I believe that housing is a human right, and public housing is the best tool we currently have to provide it. Housing insecurity is growing, and I believe that the city council should do everything it can to provide people stability. I know what precariousness is like. I barely had proper accommodation when I moved to Minnesota, but it was through the kindness of others that I prospered. I believe we should give as many people that chance as possible. We have the means to build what we need, and there are plenty of people willing to work to help out. In our community, over half of the residents make less than 35,000 dollars a year. How are we supposed to pay rent at current rates? How are young people supposed to build a life without the foundation of adequate housing? Each of us is a vital element of our community, and we all deserve a place to live. Since I moved here, I have helped more than 900 families into affordable housing. These systems are often complicated and unfair, but I have seen what's possible when there is a positive result. I want to do everything I can to make sure that happens more, and I think we can do much better.
