Gubernatorial Candidate Keith Downey Discusses Housing

Keith Downey (R, Edina), former State Representative and past chair of the Republican Party of Minnesota, met with Housing First Minnesota leadership on Monday. Amongst the many issues discussed were Minnesota's regulatory environment, the construction workforce shortage, and the role of the Metropolitan Council.

We know that regardless of who is elected, we need to be able to communicate the key issues that are facing the housing/construction industry. We believe that discussions like these are extraordinarily valuable as we look towards the future of Minnesota’s housing industry.
— Daryl Doehr, 2017 Housing First Chair

Over the coming weeks, all major gubernatorial candidates will be invited to meet with the task group of housing industry leaders.
