Congressman Jeff Duncan, representing South Carolina’s third congressional district, was honored May 1 by the Home Builders Association of Greenville with the Defender of Housing Award.
A press release from the association says the award acknowledges Duncan as a “forward-thinking federal legislator who recognizes housing’s significant role within the U.S. economy.”
“Jeff Duncan understands the key national issues facing home builders and remodelers here in the Upstate,” James Speer, 2018 president of the Home Builders Association and partner in CarsonSpeer Builders, said in the press release. “We commend him for supporting pro-housing policies such as removing needless regulatory barriers that drive up the cost of housing and make it more difficult for families to afford a home.”
Members of the Home Builders Association of Greenville presented the award to Duncan during a meeting in a new model home in a Ryan Homes Community in Fountain Inn.
