I would support Landlord training and support programs in regards to Section 8 programs. These programs would not just show property owners how to get into the program, but how to manage and maintain their properties as Landlords. I would also address any conflicts in the very tenant “friendly” Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance to avoid some of the risks landlords face in the City of Chicago, but ensuring that the Landlords are maintaining the properties appropriately.

I support the equitable distribution of affordable housing. In my time as Alderman I have already forced new developments to keep the promise of affordable housing.
