On August 21, Gabe Csizmadia, Regional Property Manager for Pinnacle, and I met with Congressman Dennis Ross (FL-15) in Lakeland. (Mr. Ross is in the center in the photo.)
The Congressman serves on the important House Financial Services Committee and the Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance. During our 25-minute conversation, he demonstrated his knowledge and awareness of key apartment issues such as disparate impact, housing finance reform, HUD and affordable housing, and energy conservation on multi-family properties. We also talked about the local economy and the health of the apartment sector.
The meeting provided Gabe and I with the opportunity to present an NAAPAC check to support the Congressman’s re-election campaign. NAAPAC seeks to support Congressional candidates who represent good government and understand the needs and concerns of the multi-family housing industry.
