DMN editorial says paper will push housing in 2012

An editorial in today’s Dallas Morning News says the paper will editorially push two housing issues on the editorial pages in 2012.

  • A monitoring of nonprofits to replace dilapidated housing and revitalize neighborhoods.
  • A look into tax-credit housing — how the process goes awry and the impact that such housing concentration has in southern Dallas.

The paper has identified two of the most important housing topics facing not just Dallas but Texas as well. The attention should help shine a much needed light on these issues.

I started my commitment to housing justice for people and communities with low incomes in 1975 in Austin's Clarksville community. These years of working side-by-side with dedicated community leaders to find solutions to housing and community development challenges have taught me some things and I’m learning new things every day.
