2018 Coalition Legislative Breakfast

Legislative Breakfast

Last week people gathered from all over the county to talk about the big issues facing our area. I was proud to be there to support Realtors and the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce.

One of the biggest challenges of our region is getting condo reform passed. The current regulatory environment for condominium construction in our state places significant liability on builders, making it prohibitively costly to bring this housing to market at an affordable price point. This is greatly impacting our inventory and affordable housing.

We addressed a lot of topics including education, transportation, and economic development (click here to learn more). I look forward to Hill Day next week when we’ll talk to our legislators about more important issues affecting homeownership because to me, there is nothing more important than encouraging homeownership and protecting those rights.
