Affordable Housing in Maine

My colleague Kate, MPA's housing organizer, recently wrote an OpEd on the state of affordable housing in Maine and the Green Housing bonds proposed by Senate President Mitchell. She relates some difficult, personal stories from people struggling to keep a roof over their heads.

Her thesis:

Economic stimulus and energy conservation are important goals, but the shameful reality of the lack of affordable housing for lower-income Mainers is the best argument for this bill.
