Discussion going on at the SVUSD Board Meeting about a possible program that helps teachers with up to 50% of the down-payment so that they could buy a home in the areas where they teach. LOVE that idea!

Obviously, there is a lot to explore and figure out IF something like this were to happen, but it all starts with talking about it.

We NEED programs like this for teachers, public servants and really everyone who needs a little help and push to help them make their homeownership dreams come true in such an expensive housing market area.

But it needs public and investor support.

You say?

Marina EarlHow about paying teachers in the district a living wage?

40 minutes ago   ·  5

Becka YorkI say yes!! I'm a teacher, and make way less money than my husband, but with our combined incomes we might actually be able to afford a mortgage if we could get help with the down payment (and that would still be a huge chunk of our paychecks with what housing is at right now). I really don't know how single income teachers or even households with two teacher incomes can afford to live here. My job as a special education teacher is rewarding and I love it, but it is not always easy, and with 100% of my monthly income having to go towards rent or a mortgage is just not right. I agree with Marina Earl, if teachers were paid a wage that took into account cost of living in our area, maybe we wouldnt need down payment assistance.

Last Saturday, this clip aired over in the UK as Scotts Valley's Dave the Horn Guy honked out some fun hip-hop melodies into God Save The Queen!

You are invited!

Dave will be doing his full show at GateWay this coming Sunday evening 7p-8p.
If you are staying at home this Memorial Day weekend, plan on bringing your family out for a great night of honks, laughter, and a gospel message.
