Re: “The INDY’s Endorsements for Orange County Schools and Affordable Housing Bonds

What I find "startling" is Indy's lack of specifics about where they supposedly "asked around" about affordable housing plans. In early September, they certainly did not respond to the Orange County Affordable Housing Coalition's concerted efforts to provide them with the very information they believe does not exist.

It takes 3 clicks from a Google search to find both Chapel Hill and Carrboro's strategic plans to address affordable housing. The plans involve intimate collaborations with reputable and well-known nonprofit organizations that have collectively served Orange County for over 50 years.

This "sea of nonprofits" is comprised of tireless advocates and professionals who have dedicated their careers to building, financing, negotiating, researching, and promoting affordable housing solutions.

Aside from flippantly dismissing the work of hundreds of affordable housing professionals in a poorly researched missive, possibly causing long-term and irreparable harm to housing efforts in Orange County, where INDY is not even based, what have YOU done to advance the cause?
