Throughout this campaign we are going to hear a lot of ideas and about many issues facing our city. Some, will be important ones and that we need to address. However, side issues and political games that so often divide us should not distract from the real conversation our city needs.
Our ability to live in this city, to have our kids live in this city is in real jeopardy and we need to come together to solve this. We have been avoiding making the tough decisions on housing since this government took office and you can see the results of this lack of leadership on the downtown eastside and in the house and rental prices at every level across our city. Every month that goes by without addressing this problem together is a month in which we dig deeper in to this hole.
Let’s put away the division, politics and side issues and work together to rebuild our city.
