While Governor Sisolak Fights for Affordable Housing, Joe Lombardo Stands with Billionaire Slumlord

Recent reporting highlights out-of-state investors purchased nearly a third of Nevada’s single-family homes which drove up costs for renters and potential homebuyers in 2021. In addition to making the single largest investment in affordable housing in Nevada’s history, Governor Sisolak is committed to cracking down on out-of-state housing speculators in a second term. 

“Governor Sisolak is committed to cracking down on out-of-state speculators pricing Nevadans out of their homes to ensure every family can achieve the American Dream,” said Sisolak for Governor spokesperson Reeves Oyster. “While the governor is fighting for housing affordability, creating good paying jobs and making historic investments to support hardworking families, Joe Lombardo is siding with the Ultra Wealthy, standing with his campaign’s single largest donor–a billionaire who got rich off of evicting families during the pandemic.”

Despite offering no plans of his own to lower costs and support Nevada families, Lombardo opposes the governor’s Home Means Nevada initiative that will create and preserve nearly 6,000 affordable units, assist with homeownership for middle income Nevadans and help over 7,000 seniors with accessibility and home repairs. Plus, recent campaign finance reports revealed Joe Lombardo’s candidacy is being bankrolled by  Robert Bigelow — a billionaire who has spent decades increasing eviction numbers and exploiting vulnerable families — to the tune of nearly $6 million. 

Lombardo has made a habit of hiding his opinions and plans from Nevadans and press – but don’t just take it from us.
