The two main issues for young families are good paying jobs and affordable housing.

The city should invest in a program that will attract technology companies that pay well. If a business can be anywhere, why not here.

As for housing, a bigger pay cheque would help some, but the answer for others is additional low cost housing. SOSBIS is one of three local agencies providing housing and they have 100 families on their waiting list. The city should commit to making an existing SOSBIS plan for a 30 unit combined senior/family facility become a reality before the next election.
