Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (4)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Answer from Deniantionette Mazingo:

The goveroner has already made an affordable amount of money set aside for los to moderate income families.  I propose and would create legislation to contract with Habitat for Humanity to build afforadable housing have a lottery first for the working poor families,  personsliving on the streets.  I would encourage the city council of the cities to look at vacant lots all over our state with tumble weed rolling over it and create some type of program once again with Habitat For Humanity and build affordable housing.  I would submit that we take these vacant buildings located all over the state, bring them up to code and once again creat affordable housing for those in dier need of assistance.
