Here’s an election day piece of information regarding positions on affordable housing as posted by CHAPA.
Brownsberger and Spilka have the most thoughtful responses. Koutoujian’s responses are bland and rather short-shrift. Clark opens again with her focus on women and seemed to go pretty far off topic. Sciortino is not listed and there is not explanation. What do you think? This is an ongoing challenge in the district and across the state. What are your thoughts about the responses?
CHAPA recently sent a brief questionnaire to all ten candidates for Congress for District 5 in Massachusetts. A special election for Massachusetts’s 5th congressional district will take place on December 10, 2013, due to the resignation of Congressman Ed Markey following his election to the United States Senate. Primary elections are scheduled for October 15.
The questionnaire asked candidates to answer questions regarding HUD funding and the LIHTC (Housing Credit) and to explain their plan to help workers afford to live and raise their families in District 5 and support low and moderate income people, elders, and people with disabilities who need assistance.
