Rep. Ruben Gallego Welcomes President Obama and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro to Phoenix, Arizona
Washington - President Obama and Secretary Castro arrived in Phoenix last night where the President will deliver a speech today to highlight the administration’s next steps to stabilize the recovering housing sector and the positive economic impact it has on millions of middle class families.
The following is a statement from Congressman Ruben Gallego:
“I want to welcome President Obama and Secretary Castro to Phoenix. This was one of the cities most affected by the housing crisis and thanks to the continuous work and investment by this administration foreclosures have gone down significantly - to the lowest levels nationwide since 2006 - and home prices are up.
“I applaud the President and his administration’s efforts to stabilize the housing market and to help more families afford the dream of home ownership. I am proud to join President Obama and Secretary Castro for this important announcement.”
