Michael Seward Commentary
Yes, it is a very interesting My Turn and also a major departure in attitude from the interactions people in the eastern part of the state are having with realtors. The hot markets there have made discussion about affordable housing to be almost impossible to have there. I hope we can find a way to reorganize our priorities around real estate to make it possible for everyone to have a home.

Welcome!
Greening Greenfield and Franklin County Continuing the Political Revolution welcome you to this discussion forum to share your concerns and ideas. In this time of COVID-19, we know that it may be difficult to meet together and hope that this discussion forum will assist in closing the gap. We are also interested in supporting Zoom discussions as much as possible. We look forward to your ideas about how to move forward whether they be in your town, in the region, the state or nationally. Housing is a human right....we have to make that part of our understanding and culture.
