Housing First Leadership Talks Housing with Representative Paul Thissen

Approximately 15 months from the 2018 elections, Housing First Minnesota is continuing the future of housing conversation with candidates vying to hold the highest seat in Minnesota government.

On Friday, Representative Paul Thissen (DFL), former Speaker of the Minnesota House of Representatives, spent one hour discussing housing affordability, workforce, the role of the Metropolitan Council, and a variety of other issues.

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, Housing First 2017 Chair

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