Says "nearly 29,000 Oregonians — almost 5 percent of all homeowners — are 90 days or more delinquent on their mortgage."

Says  "I don’t agree with Mr. Hales that we should give a sweeping break to the developers to allow them to build that infill housing without paying for those very basics."

Says "there are homes for sale on and around (Oswego Lake) right now for under $150,000 that anyone is welcome to buy."

Twenty percent of housing in Portland’s Pearl District is ‘affordable.’

Says "We do about 300 investigations a year into housing discrimination and in recent years have put about $150,000 of damages into the pockets of individuals who have been treated unfairly."

Last year, Beaverton School District had the highest number of homeless students ever recorded in Oregon. 

Says Tom Hughes supports paving over thousands of acres with over-development and sprawl.
