The Housing Authority

Our guest this week is Andi Beadles, Executive Director of the Weber Housing Authority, and she’s been studying the causes and cures for homelessness for over 11 years. We talk about the amazing work she’s doing with WHA and some interesting things she’s learned along the way. Plus we get Weber Democrats Chair Zach Thomas to walk us through the Utah’s hasty tax reform process.


Also special thanks to our sponsor, Ashley Wolthius and the Elements of Real Estate! https://www.theelementsofrealestate.com

Tax Reform Tag Team

We had a special session of the state legislature last week. Just like last year. This time, it was all about getting a complicated and unpopular tax reform bill through as fast as possible.


In fact, the bill was so hastily passed, the final version was not even made public before debate on the floor began. Kind of infuriating.


Action:

Call Governor Herbert's office and tell him to veto the bill.

Andi Beadles, Weber Housing Authority

There's no way to sugar coat it: Homelessness is on the rise in Weber county. And, we have the only shelters north of Salt Lake City. That's where Andi Beadles and the Weber Housing Authority come in.


She sits down with us to chat about the programs they have to help get people housed and in to programs that can help them be successful.


Don't miss out on the Point in Time Count coming up next month! John Miles will be there and so should you.


Action:

Sign up for the Point in Time Count with the Weber Housing Authority and learn more about what you can do to help with homelessness in Weber county.
