LEAVENWORTH — Gov. Jay Inslee visited Leavenworth Friday to meet with local elected officials and nonprofit organizations to discuss the shortage of affordable, workforce housing in the area.

“We have a housing crisis in the state of Washington,” he said at Leavenworth City Hall. “It’s manifested in people living in tarps in our large cities. It’s manifested in our rural communities not having enough housing for working people.”
