ANDOVER, MA – Next week, Democratic congressional candidate Dan Koh will go on an affordable housing tour across the Third District, meeting with local leaders and community organizations to discuss initiatives to create more quality, affordable housing. The tour begins next Tuesday, July 17th, in Lowell.

“Right now, we are facing an affordable housing crisis,” said Koh. “Skyrocketing housing costs are hurting our economy and putting too many jobs out of the reach of hard-working families who are doing everything right. We need a comprehensive community effort to develop more affordable and workforce housing, and that means having effective elected officials who both listen and deliver. I am looking forward to hearing from advocacy groups, municipal housing authorities, and economic development organizations about how we can expand access to quality, affordable housing.”
