It’s hard to think of anything more fundamental than having a safe, warm place to call home. But we seem to be falling further and further behind in making sure that older Mainers can afford their homes.

Our housing stock is too inefficient, too far from critical services and too expensive for our most vulnerable seniors, and we can’t just keep ignoring the problem.

Fortunately, Maine voters have a chance to address this problem on Nov. 3.

Question 2, the $15 million senior affordable housing bond, will use Maine workers to build safe, affordable, energy-efficient homes in which older Mainers can successfully age in place. I encourage people to vote yes on Question 2.
