I’ve been hearing from seniors who are afraid: they can’t afford to stay in their homes and can’t afford to live in our neighborhoods anymore. This is unacceptable. I will work across city and state government to make sure that our seniors are not getting squeezed out of the neighborhoods due to rent increases and they have access to property tax deductions that keep living at home affordable. This isn’t just what’s right – seniors deserve better. Seniors also face isolation as they age in place. I will work for more senior and intergenerational programming to address these challenge and help bring more accessible and affordable home improvement programs to the District.
