NAA President & CEO Robert Pinnegar statement in response to Wednesday’s Democratic debate
Dear NAA Members,
Last night, 10 presidential candidates took the stage for the fifth Democratic debate. For the first time in nearly half a century, a national spotlight was placed on the housing affordability crisis and candidates offered a glimpse into how they plan to tackle this issue.
National Apartment Association (NAA) President & CEO Robert Pinnegar, CAE, released the following statement in response to Wednesday’s Democratic debate:
“Our leaders must support sustainable housing affordability policies that provide real relief to residents, housing operators and owners alike. Too often politicians embrace deeply flawed, quick-fix proposals that do nothing to address the root of the housing problem – a lack of housing supply at all price points amid growing demand. The simple fact is that we need more housing and must streamline and reform targeted programs to assist low- and moderate-income renters. Our nation’s countless rental housing owners and operators, alongside nearly 39 million apartment residents, deserve real solutions to housing affordability issues.”
