Congresswoman Waters Participates in Q&A with Herald Publications

February 19, 2013
In The News
Congresswoman Waters recently participated in a "Political Q&A" conducted by Herald Publications. The Congresswoman's response appeared in the February 14th edition of all Herald Publication newspapers, including the El Segundo Herald, Hawthorne Press Tribune, the Inglewood Sun, the Manhattan Beach Sun and the Torrance Tribune.

Responding to a prompt asking what she is most optimistic about heading into the New Year, the Congresswoman replied:

"I am extremely optimistic about 2013 for the South Bay communities and our entire nation. We have faced an economic downturn, but the recovery of the U.S. housing market is reason to look forward with optimism. Home prices in November 2012 rose 5.5 percent relative to a year ago. This is the biggest increase in home values since the peak of the housing boom in 2006. As the recovery continues to gain strength, rising home values will help spur economic growth. Many economists anticipate that home prices will continue rising well into 2013 due to low interest rates and a small inventory of homes available for sale. My hope is that rising home values, leading to an improved economy can give you and your family a positive outlook on this year."
