Many low-income families and persons experiencing homelessness have debt to the utility companies, which are now barriers to their ability to securing housing. Would you support increasing debt forgiveness programs for 3-4 years to help more people access housing? (Y/N/Explain)

Steve Adler


There are some legal limitations to debt forgiveness by our utilities, but we need to be maximizing every opportunity and we need to be approaching the legislature to give cities more related tools and allowances.
