Darneille named Hero by Low Income Housing Alliance

May 30th, 2014|

Sen. Jeannie Darneille, D-Tacoma, was recently named a 2014 Hero for Homes at the 5th Annual Advocacy Awards Celebration of the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance.

“I am humbled and honored to receive this award,” said Darneille. “As a legislator, I am proud to work with my colleagues to help ensure that we are supporting the tremendous work underway in our communities to reduce homelessness. All people in our state deserve a safe, secure place to call home.”

Darneille was awarded the Hero honor for her longtime commitment to health and human services, affordable housing and homelessness programs, and anti-poverty issues. She was the prime sponsor of the initial Document Recording Fee bill (Senate Bill 6313) introduced in the Senate and continued to work toward a solution to continuing the minimal fee on real estate documents and transactions. Darneille’s actions this session were critical to preserving close to $200 million for homelessness services across the state.

Other legislators honored at the celebration include Rep. David Sawyer, D-South Tacoma, who was named “2014 Legislator of the Year,” and Sen. David Frockt, D-Seattle, who was also named a Hero for Homes.

The Washington Low Income Housing Alliance was founded in 1988 and is a leader in affordable housing and homelessness policy and advocacy in the state.
