    Affordable housing. It can go so much further than 3,000 units. This state has access to a lot of foreclosed and abandoned property in need of renovation. Just think the men and women in shelters who can work construction under the guidance of an official licensed NYC Forman and supervisor, would be able to work these renovations for acquiring an apartment for their family as well as building up apartments for other families. It’s a project I have worked on along time and it is workable. Judith Beatty
