NMHC members met with senior Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) this month. Bennet is a pragmatic, independent thinker with a business background. He has emerged as an effective leader with a proven record of bringing people together to deliver results for working families.
Specifically, it was another home run for the NMHC PAC personal dollar campaign at this successful fundraising event where Senator Bennet met with our members. The event raised $30,000 for his re-election efforts.
Lauren Brockman and Tim Myers kicked-off the fundraiser, which was held at a newly opened multifamily property in the heart of Denver. An outstanding line up of industry leaders also co-hosted the event, including: Sue Ansel, David Birnbaum, Daryl Carter, Alan George, Clyde Holland, David Neithercut and Jeff Stack. Carter and Holland flew-in to attend in person. And NMHC Government Affairs executives, Cindy Chetti and Eileen Lee came from Washington to support Senator Bennet.
NMHC members used this time to educate the Senator on the key legislative priorities of the multifamily industry including; GSE reform, tax reform, workforce and affordable housing challenges.
