    Name: Zander Kahuhu Party: Republican Interviewing Agency: King 5 "I have some concerns about the Helping Others Home Act of 1987 including it's significantly high amount of funds being put into the HUD. However, I will be strongly considering my vote on this bill, with a high homeless population in my District I need to think what they would want. I will consider supporting the bill for them, they are counting on me and with my recent affordable housing forum and listening to many of my constituents stance on this homeless issue, I think it's time for me to put people over politics."

    Kahuhu Announces Support to Helping Others Home Act of 1987 WASHINGTON, D.C- Congressman Zander Kahuhu (R-WA) speaking on behalf of a 8th Congressional District with the highest homeless population in the State of Washington, notably Bellevue, Auburn, Federal Way, and parts of Seattle that influence the high homelessness. As housing prices go up and the housing market grows, Washington State looks more and more likely to head into one of the biggest homelessness crisis in the whole Pacific Northwest. Before publicly speaking out in support of the bill, Kahuhu told the media that he dislikes the amount of money being contributed into this and that it should be lowered. However, with his recent speech on the House floor, we now know that is probably no longer a concern of his. On the House Floor, he stated, " Washington’s 8th Congressional District has some of the largest homeless populations in Washington State and even though I may be somewhat skeptical of this bill, I put my constituents interest before mine and with the affordable housing crisis in my District, it’s causing more people to lose homes and a homeless Crisis is starting to build up in my District. If we don’t act upon this homeless issue, soon cities like Seattle and Bellevue will be flooded with homeless camps." Hours after his anticipated public announcement Kahuhu stated, "Yes, I believe the amount of funds going into this is too high, however, the homeless people in my District are counting on me to help them, many of whom showed up at my affordable housing forum I held in Bellevue. I simply cannot oppose this bill, the affordable housing crisis in our State is getting bad and it's time I step up." Kahuhu asked to be a co sponsor to the bill and plans to vote for it once the time comes.

    Helping Others Home act of 1987

    Mr Speaker, I am pleased to announce on the House floor today that I am in support of this bill. This piece of legislation will help my constituents a ton. Washington’s 8th Congressional District has some of the largest homeless populations in Washington State and even though I may be somewhat skeptical of this bill, I put my constituents interest before mine and with the affordable housing crisis in my District, it’s causing more people to lose homes and a homeless Crisis is starting to build up in my District. If we don’t act upon this homeless issue, soon cities like Seattle and Bellevue will be flooded with homeless camps. We cannot let this happen, this Legislation is a good push forward and the people in my district cannot support it more. I ask to be a co-sponsor of this legislation and plan to vote for it when the times comes. I yield.

    Kahuhu Holds Housing Forum in Bellevue BELLEVUE- Congressman Zander Kahuhu (R-Federal Way) held a housing forum in Bellevue last Friday, and spoke to an estimated crowd of 10,000 people from the 8th Congressional District. The forum was held at Bellevue College, in a City known for very high housing prices. Concerns mentioned in the forum were rapidly increasing housing prices, instability in housing prices, high property taxes, discriminatory landlords, and housing discrimination, among others. "Housing prices should not be going up so fast, in such a little amount of time, politicians across the State of Washington are not doing their job, as a State Senator, I addressed the issue, and I warned us, I saw that our housing industry was going into a big hole, and now look, it'll only get worse unless we do something about it. Olympia needs to step up and fight for their constituents, I promise I will do everything I can at the Federal level to make housing more affordable, reliable and less discriminatory." Kahuhu stated. Kahuhu first dealt with the issue of housing during his time as Tacoma Mayor and it has been very important to him ever since. Washington State has some of the most unstable housing prices in the Country and it's something every single person should worry about. "Washington State should not be afraid to work with the "Other Washington" in these situations, it is vital to receive support from Representatives like us, I'll be glad to help in DC as much as I can." Kahuhu said. Congressman Kahuhu has had a positive voting record when it comes to housing and infrastructure, and that trend is expected to continue as he serves Washington State's 8th District in the US House of Representatives.
