The housing industry makes up roughly 15% of the GDP. When you see new homes being built in your community it means local jobs are created, local tax dollars are being generated, local goods and services are utilized, local friends and neighbors are living in your community, and on-and-on the list goes. The impact of the housing industry cannot be overstated.
And this November, the future of your personal and business taxes and regulations for the next 2-4 years is at stake. As a member of one of the leading trade organizations in Minnesota, YOU can make an impact with your vote. Be the voice of the housing industry!
Of course the top-of-ticket is important, but your local leaders have just as much of an impact, if not more! 134 state representatives, 67 state senators, 8 United States Representatives, 1Minnesota Supreme Court Justice, 1Constitutional Amendment, and numerous additional local offices and questions are on the ballots throughout Minnesota this year.
