HBA of Greenville names Congressman Jeff Duncan a Defender of Housing

May 7, 2018

Congressman Jeff Duncan, representing South Carolina’s third congressional district, was honored by the Home Builders Association of Greenville with the Defender of Housing Award, acknowledging him 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, APB, 2018 President of the Home Builders Association and partner in CarsonSpeer Builders, said. “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 Defender of Housing Award to Congressman Duncan during a meeting with the Congressman in a new model home in a Ryan Homes Community in Fountain Inn on Tuesday, May 1.

NAHB created the Defender of Housing Award on behalf of the more than 700 state and local HBAs across the country that make up the NAHB federation. These HBAs chose their nominees and a panel of NAHB elected leaders chose the finalists. The awards are being presented now through the fall to recipients nationwide.
