Read full caption or press release

"It is unacceptable that many people who are making significant contributions to our wonderful community can not afford to live in the community in which they serve. They are our service industry workers, our teachers, nurses, bus drivers, firefighters, police officers—many of the people upon whom we depend each and every day....We must fully address our need to provide more affordable, special need and workforce housing in the county."

County Executive Isiah Leggett
Excerpted from December 4, 2006 Inaugural Speech
