Advocating for You: ACAR Represented at Twinsburg Council Meeting
On March 27, 2018, ACAR’s Vice President of Government Affairs was invited to attend the Twinsburg City Council meeting to speak regarding Fair Housing.
McMillen took the opportunity to highlight the upcoming 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, which will occur April 11, 2018. Local governments have been encouraged by ACAR to celebrate the historic law by proclaiming April 2018 as Fair Housing Month in their jurisdiction.
Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity.
Twinsburg Councilwoman & Realtor® Jo-Ann McFearin was appreciative of ACAR sharing insight on Fair Housing, and noted that many take it for granted unfortunately.
