There are thousands of people in this state who are having real problems finding a decent place to live, either renting or owning their own home. This is a need our state government can do something about and they can do it without breaking the budget as long as they’re willing to use new ideas and new approaches to dealing with the problem. John Carney has shown that he understands the problem and how to go about fixing it. When I think of affordable housing for Delawareans, I think of John Carney.


To the Editor:

On of the most important ideas John Carney has been stressing as he goes around Delaware in his campaign for governor is the need for more affordable housing. This sounds like a no-brainer, but it’s not something that just happens automatically. The people at the top have to make it happen and John Carney is committed to doing that.

When my wife and I purchased our house 14 years ago, we paid $55,000 for a three-bedroom house. It wasn’t the fanciest house around but it met our needs while our kids were growing up. Today, my kids couldn’t get what we got for four or five times that amount.

That’s why I’m supporting him.
