Civil Beat publishes my opinion-editorial about the new trend of converting unsold affordable housing units to “market”

Filed under: Hawaii State Politics,Honolulu Politics — Doug @ 4:09 pm

Here’s the link: Honolulu Civil Beat – ‘Affordable’ Housing Shouldn’t Be Sold Off.  In a nutshell, I live in an affordable housing project where the remaining unsold units (after a series of obscure “public” meetings) were removed from the available pool of affordable housing units and are now offered for sale to anyone (including non-owner-occupant “investors”).

I link to the article here since I am not a paid member at Civil Beat and, thus, I could not participate in any discussion at Civil Beat if my piece generated comments….

I did a fair amount of research on this topic and I could go into much greater detail about it (if anyone were interested) but I was asked to observe a word count limit.

If you’re visiting my blog for the first time via the Civil Beat link, welcome.  Please, have a look around at my previous work.
