Bonamici discusses housing problems with local leaders
Finding solutions to address affordable housing — not only in Columbia County but across the state and country — is complex and multifaceted.
That was the major outcome from a discussion between Democratic U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici and a group of community leaders who met Monday, May 6, in St. Helens to discuss the intricacies, challenges and possible innovative solutions to the affordable housing crisis.
During the hour-long roundtable discussion, representatives from Community Action Team, the Columbia Pacific Food Bank, the city of St. Helens, the Columbia County Board of Commissioners, SAFE of Columbia County and other organizations, met with the congresswoman.
Bonamici has hosted several similar meetings in cities throughout Oregon's First Congressional District to get a sense of need in the district she represents.
