Jim Hummel recently did a report on the affordable housing issue in Barrington. The purpose of this move to affordable housing mandates is resettlement from cities to towns in suburbs. (At considerable expense to residents of those towns due to the tax subsidies involved.)
Please vote No on Question 7, which gives the Rhode Island Housing Authority $25 million to keep expanding this iniative. The wording reads: "Approval of this question will allow the State of Rhode Island to issue general obligation bonds, refunding bonds, and temporary notes in an amount not to exceed twenty-five million dollars ($25,000,000) for affordable housing."
This is Agenda 21 at it's best! You can read the section on Promoting Sustainable Human Settlement Development here. Please vote NO on Question 7! Please forward this link to as many people as you can and ask them to comment! We must stop this in its tracks!
