August 10: Sen. Cantwell at Affordable Housing round table in Eastsound

U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) will hold a roundtable with affordable housing advocates to discuss the need for affordable housing options on the San Juan Islands, as well as Senator Cantwell’s efforts to secure more federal resources for affordable housing in Washington state and around the country.
