"I have more than 25 years of professional experience helping cities build affordable housing, finance public facilities and help small businesses create jobs in their communities. I managed some of Washington state's most successful grant and loan programs, including the Housing Trust Fund, as well as programs that address homelessness, and the Community Development Block Grant program, which supports projects all over the state doing housing rehabilitation, economic development and infrastructure projects."
