Hobbs writes op-ed for BDN about rent control

Kelsi Hobbs, assistant professor of economics at the University of Maine, wrote an opinion piece for the Bangor Daily News about rent control and affordable housing. Hobbs is a member of the Maine chapter of the national Scholars Strategy Network, which brings together scholars across the country to address public challenges and their policy implications. “To solve Maine’s affordable housing crisis, we need to make sure that we understand which policies will help solve the affordable housing crisis and which policies won’t. We then need to make sure that we vote for and support candidates that will help bring these policies to fruition. If we are not willing to do these things, then we are not going to see an end to Maine’s affordable housing crisis any time soon,” Hobbs wrote.
