Campaign Promises

Baltimore City logoBefore the election began, we sent all Baltimore City candidates a questionnaire about housing, and collected the responses. Now that the election is over and the candidates have taken office, it’s a good time to remind them of their responses, and also to remind them that we intend to hold them accountable for the state of housing in Baltimore, particularly two points: the lack of affordable rental housing for low- to moderate-income residents, and also the lack of leadership at the Housing Authority of Baltimore City.

Below are links to the survey responses of the election winners. Those who didn’t respond will be noted as well:
