Detroit – Today, Judy Barker, Vice President of the Grosse Pointe Board of Realtors (GPBR), announced that both the Detroit Association of Realtors (DAR) and the GPBR voted unanimously to endorse Pamela Sossi in the District 1 Special Election.
“Since 2005, over 1-in-3 homes in Detroit have been foreclosed; leaving 80,000 abandoned and blighted properties,” Pamela Sossi said. “It is imperative that we quickly demolish and clean up those properties that cannot be saved. Thanks to the quality of the construction, many properties are simply waiting for a family to call them home.” Sossi continued, “Our state must continue to fully fund programs like Step Forward Michigan and Save The Dream so people can afford these homes and we need quality Realtors to put people in these homes.” “I look forward to working with the Detroit Association of Realtors and Grosse Pointe Board of Realtors in Lansing to see how the state can help.”
The 1st District includes the cities of Harper Woods and Grosse Pointe Woods as well as portions of Detroit and Grosse Pointe Shores. The Primary Election is August 8.
