May 11, 2017—Current CLLAS executive board member Gerardo Sandoval has joined the Oregon State Housing Stability Council, tapped for his expertise on gentrification and rural community development issues and for his experience in outreach to Latino communities throughout Oregon. An associate professor in the University of Oregon Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management, Dr. Sandoval was nominated to this position by Governor Kate Brown and confirmed by the Oregon Senate. His first meeting with the council took place on May 5.

The role of the Oregon State Housing Stability Council is to “provide leadership in, and review and set policy for, the development and financing of affordable housing throughout the state of Oregon.”

A message from the director of Oregon Housing and Community Services dated May 5, 2017 states: “We look forward to [Dr. Sandoval’s] expertise on gentrification, the nexus between housing affordability and transit-oriented development in low-income neighborhoods, and creating mechanisms of public participation. OHCS will also surely benefit from his research and outreach experience in Southern and Eastern rural Oregon, as well as his insight as a disabled military veteran and interest in affordable housing for Oregon veterans.”
