Roger Valdez

For the past twenty five years, Roger Valdez has been involved in public policy in the areas of education, health, and housing. Before becoming the Director of Seattle For Growth, Valdez was housing director at a large regional non-profit, managing housing operations and development. Over the last decade, Valdez has been an advocate for progressive supply side solutions to housing scarcity, and it is usually lack of housing that keeps cities expensive for poorer people and families. His background as a staff person for state and local elected officials, work in the non-profit sector, at a sustainability think tank, in political campaigns, and in the public health field have culminated in his work for Seattle For Growth, a housing and growth advocacy organization pushing for more housing supply for all levels of income in Seattle.
