Members of the Fairfax community gathered Monday evening for a discussion on affordable housing options available to lower-income residents.

The discussion was hosted by Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement as a way to raise awareness on an issue they believe is critical for the future of the City of Fairfax.

In attendance were Mayor Scott Silverthorne, as well as City Councilmembers David Meyers and Michael DeMarco.

Reverend Henry Brinton of the Fairfax Presbyterian Church opened the discussion, explaining to the congregation that the purpose of the meeting was to “take a step forward in the City on the issue of affordable housing.”
