Housing Affordability: Key to Economic Growth

I believe Alexandria is one of the best places in the country to live. It is a unique and charming community where neighbors care about each other and welcome new residents with open arms. Alexandrians should be able to afford to live here.

Problem: The Alexandria Redevelopment & Housing Authority (ARHA) has faced several issues as to maintaining suitable and affordable housing for low-income residents. The ARHA’s efforts to appropriately revitalize based on the needs of its communities, while ensuring that each resident feels a part of our Alexandria community must be addressed.

Solution: As a city council member, I would work with city administration to ensure that we are adhering to the Housing Master Pan’s call for expanded units and protect a suitable amount of existing affordable housing units. I believe that all Alexandria families should have the opportunity to obtain safe and suitable housing.
