Affordable housing is essential to our economic growth and to retain our tradition as a just and inclusive community. As Council President, Gabe shepherded a record $190 million investment to preserve and build affordable housing. But this is not enough. He has also supported net-zero loss of affordable housing in every Master Plan, tax breaks for first responders & elderly military spouses, and believes we should more creatively redevelop county owned properties into housing near transit corridors to ensure that our residents can live where they work.
