Transcript of Coleman comment on housing issue: 4/2/08 As a former mayor I’d know that the foundation of our communities is based on home ownership. (It) May sound trite, but housing is a foundation for strong neighborhoods. Housing creates good jobs, it creates stable places for workers to live. Housing creates wealth, it has created wealth. When there’s trouble in housing our economy suffers, our workers suffer, our families suffer. In my travels in town hall forums based on housing I’ve held back home in Minnesota during the past several months, I have seen firsthand that this crisis is hurting my state. But like every American, this crisis is attacking the place that I call home. It’s taking away from the folks I live around, that I worked hard to help as mayor. The communities and neighborhoods that were really struggling in the nineties when I got elected, we built them up, and now we’re seeing many of them start to fray and come apart. (It’s a) Very personal issue for all of us.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
