The largest challenge that we face, from my perspective, is the ability to continue moving forward so the agency will have a single mission: that is, to provide decent, safe, and affordable housing.
The dream doesn't lie in victimization or blame; it lies in hard work, determination and a good education.
You can't rise as a class. You have to rise individually. It's what many of the civil rights-era people don't understand.
So, we're saying, if we can give developers and builders incentives to cut down on the regulatory barriers that are faced in this country, then we might be able to address the needs of affordable housing.
And what most people don't understand is the bulk of business in this country is small business.
