In announcing his pick for Lt. Governor, Falchuk noted Jennings’s accomplishments in the critical area of housing played a leading role in his decision to ask Jennings to join his campaign. “Angus’s housing expertise and longtime experience working productively with everyone from state agency personnel and city mayors to municipal decision makers and community activists make him an ideal choice,” Falchuk said.
“The cost of living in our state has risen steadily while incomes have remained stagnant – and the two biggest drivers of those increased costs have been health care and housing. For today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities, it’s easy to see the inherent value of having such a respected voice in housing on the ticket. My selection of Angus is reflective of the approach I’d take in filling other government posts. I will seek out valuable, real-world experience and a track record of meaningful accomplishment.“
