Description of Fellowship
Ari Alowan Goldstein worked for the Massachusetts Legislature in the Office of State Representative Kevin Honan, chair of the Joint Committee on Housing. In collaboration with Jim McGlynn, Committee counsel, he drafted and released a report on the need for preservation and modernization of 50,000 units of state-sponsored public housing through the creation of an autonomous state bonding authority. He also crafted expiring-use legislation, effecting 90,000 units of housing throughout the Commonwealth, and engaged in policy meetings on the future funding of Chapter 40R and 40S, both intended to promote smart housing development.
