Dear Sadowski Affiliates: YOU DID IT!
The emails you sent last Friday to key staff in the Governor’s office resulted in a meeting for the Sadowski Coalition in the Governor’s office on Thursday, January 31. We filled the conference room with representatives from each of the 30 Sadowski Coalition organizations, from Associated Industries of Florida, the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Realtors and Florida Home Builders Association to Florida AARP, Volunteers of America, Habitat for Humanity of Florida, Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Florida Coalition for the Homeless, and of course, the Florida Housing Coalition.
The Governor’s budget recommends fully restoring the appropriation of Sadowski State and Local housing trust funds for housing—no sweeps! The Governor deserves our gratitude- he listened, he understood, and did the right thing. He has set the stage now for the Legislature to do the right thing and follow his lead.
We will have the next Sadowski Affiliates Webinar on Friday, February 8, at 3pm.

Please remember to make appointments to meet with your legislators in their local offices (where you live) the week of February 25—that will be your last opportunity prior to session.
Thank you for all your hard work!
