Letter to the editor: Save affordable housing

Governor Brown's proposal to eliminate redevelopment agencies - the largest local source of funds for affordable housing development in California - appears to have enough support to sail through with very little resistance. Well, we are not giving up without a fight.

Our partners at Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California have created a short video that we would broadcast all over the state, especially in Sacramento, if we could afford the air time. Unfortunately, we do not have that kind of money.

So, we are asking you spend three minutes to watch the video (http://tinyurl.com/4ltln6c), and then call an elected official (www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html) to tell them to save affordable housing.

Perhaps you could then take another 30 seconds to encourage your friends to do the same? It's worth a try and certainly worth spending two, maybe three, minutes to save jobs and keep a roof over the heads of seniors, foreclosure victims and the unemployed.
