Affordable Housing Eyed in Hillsborough
(2006-05-18)
(WUSF) - Hillsborough County Commissioner Tom Scott spearheaded a task force that studied successful affordable housing programs in other states and cities.

After delivering their final report, Scott asked for action on three items: to sponsor a housing summit in 2006, create an advisory board and hire an administrator to oversee a county program.

Commissioner Ronda Storms however wanted assurances.

STORMS: This area has had a lot of problems with graph and corruption and I'm very concerned about some of the players.

So she amended Scott's to require a conflict of interest analysis.
The commissioners passed the amended affordable housing motion unanimously.
