Alonzo was accompanied by IAR’s Housing Policy Advisor Sharon Gorrell who was a panelist at a forum on housing and its impact on economic development. She shared with the group the direct and indirect expenditure impacts on the economy developed last year for a report created through the Advocacy program.
