James Lloyd and Bret Garwood on "Connections."

James Lloyd and Bret Garwood appear on "Connections with Evan Dawson" on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.

An upcoming conference will address these questions and more. We preview the event and examine the state of affordable housing in the region with our guests:
