LETTER: Housing for Nelson residents who need it

From reader Rosie Eberle

Re: Affordable housing more complex than pitchy election promises, Oct. 6

Kudos to Jenny Robinson for her thoughtful editorial addressing housing needs. We don’t need more luxury condos by the lake. We need places for ordinary people with ordinary jobs held by people who will admit you when you need emergent care, serve you in a restaurant or care for your children.

Rent to own and other solutions that prevent the ongoing abject commodification of housing are urgently needed.
