Presidential Candidate Highlights Affordable Housing Needs
"Representative Dennis J. Kucinich sought yesterday to focus the spotlight that follows presidential candidates on the issue of affordable housing, visiting a housing-assistance center and speaking of his own family's experience of living in 21 homes by the time he was 17. The Ohio Democrat said that, if elected, he would seek to increase the stock of affordable housing by providing financial assistance in the form of rental vouchers, as well as increased funding for transitional facilities..." He told reporters, " 'It's not a very powerful constituency, electorally, because guess what? If you don't have a home, you're less likely to vote....This is a constituency which, for me, is from the heart.' "
