Issues

Transit

Hillsborough needs to look toward the future. Year after year, we’ve sat paralyzed and failed to move forward with the transit infrastructure a growing region needs. In the meantime, similar regions across the country have passed us by, welcoming trains, planes, and automobiles. We have dozens of studies on this that have been completed over the years. It’s time to stop studying and start acting.


Smart Growth

The people of Hillsborough are demanding smart growth, but too many Commissioners are not listening. The solutions to our problems with sprawl are simple, but they require saying "no" to powerful people sometimes. The current Commission finds it very difficult to turn down lobbyist money and say “NO” to developments that create sprawl. This county deserves Commissioners who will put the needs of the people first and focus on development that helps our communities instead of hurting them. Let’s listen to experts, not to people who are profiting at the expense of Hillsborough families.


Affordable Housing

Rents are rising faster than wages and families are struggling to find affordable housing in Hillsborough County. Fast growth has many advantages for our region, but it also requires careful stewardship of new development. Unfortunately, our current County Commissioners are not making good on their responsibility to guide and manage development. With a commitment to serving the needs of the people, we can stop the rapid increase in rents and make housing affordable throughout the county.
