Affordable housing is among the highest priorities for the people of Salt Lake City, and the State of Utah. We must not price working Utah families out of the Great American Dream of owning a house. That means we must ensure that there is adequate construction to keep up with our growing numbers. We must secure programs for low and moderate income citizens to help them realize this American Dream.
Additionally, renters deserve respect and reasonable rental prices. Too often I see families forced to live in cramped quarters due to the rising cost of rent.
I promise to work together with builders and communities, as well as lenders and government programs, to bring affordable housing to Utah families and individuals. I will continue to make affordable housing a priority.
