Elyria has been among the cities hardest hit by the housing crisis. Councilman Madison has fought for policies to address the housing crisis, keep families in their homes, and address high rental property and abandoned homes. He has also played a lead role in helping to stabilize the community by advocating for funding to buy vacant foreclosed properties that can become a magnet for crime and vandalism in the 5th Ward. To help homeowners facing foreclosures, Councilman Madison has also partnered with Save The Dream Ohio, a foreclosure prevention effort to allow homeowners to refinance or modify their mortgages so they can stay in their homes.
