Habitat’s Advocacy Commitment

As we enter into November and the dust settles on election season, Habitat remains steadfastly focused on our mission, bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. It is through this lens will we continue our critical work, engaging the entire community to build safe, decent and affordable housing for those in need. We remind everyone we are all in this together. We share the same goals of living in a happy, healthy and vibrant community.

Habitat would like to congratulate all of the election night winners and look forward to working with all to advance affordable homeownership within our service area.

A special thank you to those leaving their seats

We would like to thank Representative Wengay Newton for his tireless advocacy for affordable housing throughout his years as an elected official. Representative Newton always had his constituency in his heart and provided a voice for the often voiceless. He was a consistent and welcomed sight at countless home dedications helping greet the newest homeowner to his district. We thank him for his years of public service, as well as his support of the Habitat mission and wish him well in his next endeavors.

 

Representative Jen Webb was an ardent supporter of the Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund during her time in the Florida Legislature. She went to Tallahassee with bold ideas and quickly ascended to a leadership position within the Democratic Caucus. Although Representative Webb was not victorious in her re-election, we know she will continue her work for those in need as she has done her entire career. Thank you for your service, Representative Webb.

 

Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch continued his father’s legacy of service to the community and did so proudly. After two decades on the county commission, his accolades are too many to list. One thing we can say about Commissioner Welch is he always had a focus on housing and supported affordable housing throughout his tenure. We thank him for all of his support over the years. We will miss having such a distinguished USF alumnus on the commission, yet know this is not the last chapter. Looking forward to seeing what he does next. Thanks again for your commitment to the community and best of luck Commissioner Welch!
