Housing: Note from Maine Equal Justice
In a press conference April 9, Governor Mills voiced her opposition to evictions. "It's not the right time for any landlord to be evicting anybody. ANYBODY." We agree. Mainers also need assistance to meet their housing costs in order to make it through this public health emergency and economic downturn. Now is an important time to contact the Governor again and make sure her policy on housing reflects the needs we are hearing about from Mainers with low income.
Call Governor Mills TODAY at: 207-287-3531(ask to leave a message if voicemail is full)
Thank her for making housing a priority at this time. Ask her to include the following in any action she takes: No evictions, No New Debt, Emergency Rental Assistance, Retroactive Support. And House Everyone.
