It is still early in the year, but 2018 has proven to be an important election year. Included on the November ballot, Minnesotans will be electing a new governor. Congressman Tim Walz (CD1, DFL), who is running to hold that seat, met with Housing First Minnesota leadership on Wednesday to discuss a variety of housing issues and his campaign to be Minnesota's next governor.
Among the many topics discussed were Minnesota's regulatory environment, the construction workforce shortage, and the role of the Metropolitan Council.
Housing First Minnesota has invited all major gubernatorial candidates to meet with the task group of housing industry leaders and will continue to elevate housing a priority during the 2018 elections.
