With less than two weeks until election day, local candidates are working tirelessly to get their message out to voters.

Thursday, Charlottesville City Council candidate Brandon Collins discussed his stance on public housing. The Independent candidate addressed the crowd at the Westhaven Community Center about his plans for fixing what he called Charlottesville's affordable housing crisis.

Collins proposed increasing the city's $1.4 million housing fund and spending the money more wisely.

"We talk a lot about it in city government, but if you look at the data, it shows there's still a crisis out here, and we can do a whole lot more," he said.

Collins is one of four Independents and three Democrats vying for three seats on City Council. Election Day is Nov. 8.
