Across our state, planning boards are approving hundreds of housing units for development — but State legislators still haven’t reached a compromise solution for affordable housing, despite the State’s $1 billion surplus. State lawmakers must give greater attention to the construction of 40-B housing units in areas close to T-stations. In Plymouth, lawmakers consider a $350,000 townhouse affordable. Stephen Michael Palmer thinks they are wrong.
Mr. Palmer seeks to represent the working class with tax cuts and affordable housing and healthcare. He asks for your support on March 3, 2020.
