All three of my big brothers served in the military.
I know the responsibilities we owe to our service members, veterans, and their families.
So I’ve got a new plan to improve military housing, and I’d like to take a minute to tell you about it.
The way it works right now, a handful of private developers have taken over 99% of domestic military family housing.
Driven by short-term payoffs and with little meaningful oversight, these contractors have failed to maintain the homes they were entrusted with.
Military families have been living with lead paint, faulty wiring, collapsing ceilings, and mice infestations. Mold has taken over entire rooms. Kids are getting sick from living in these homes.
That’s not how we should treat our service members — and it needs to stop now.
My plan would improve our military housing, protect families from abuse, and hold private developers accountable. Add your name if you’re ready to be a part of this fight.
