A moral issue


For residents like Gloria Moreno, how the statements could better capture the experience of low-income residents, renters and members of the Latino community as they struggle with the rising regional housing costs was top of mind. Noting many are forced to live in their cars or together with multiple families, Moreno emphasized the stress some community members feel in trying to make ends meet.
“I think this is more that just an affordable housing issue, this is a moral issue,” she said. “People are living in their cars, people can barely afford to live here.”
