    Hi! My name is Tanner Howard, and I’m a freelance journalist currently working on a story about public housing in Minneapolis. I’m trying to get a better sense of the RAD program and how it would potentially cause displacement and privatization of the city’s public housing stock, an outcome the city’s housing authority insists will not be the case. I have seen Michael Kane speak on these issues elsewhere, and would love to talk with him or someone else on these issues! Thanks!

    Hi There,


    My name is Cindy, and I am writing because at this moment, I am working on a number of PR projects in the same area as saveourhomes.org.


    It would be absolutely wonderful if we could discuss ways in which we can work together to produce content for saveourhomes.org, whether it is contributed content or advertising placements. I represent a range of review and information businesses within our sector.


    Yes, this does include a limited budget should certain terms be met. Additionally, I want to assure you that I always write well researched, original content tailored to what you and your readers like to see. Furthermore, I have a track record of attracting fresh visitors to the sites I work with.


    For my part, I require a single, followed link to one of the websites I’m working for. We prefer for it not to be tagged as such, however. I would also like for my content to be easily found by casual browsers and where possible, linked to from any main category page.


    My work is always of the highest quality and I am more than open to ideas and topic suggestions. If you like the sound of this, please send over your pricing structure, and other details so we can proceed. I look forward to hearing back from you.


    Best Regards,

    Cindy


    PS – If you’re not interested, I totally understand. You’re not on a contact list and I won’t get in touch again.

    Hello, I am in need of legal assistance to protect me. I’m a renter in Los Angeles county dealing with an illegal landlord and an illegal sublease. The management company is aware of the illegal activity on her part as well as my rent going towards my “landlord”’s (who actually is a renting tenant not owner of condo) other unit which she resides and rents along with her boyfriend (that particular unit lease under her boyfriend’s name and her name is on the master lease for the unit which I’m renting a bedroom in.). All of this coming to fruition in March when I found it Unlawful Detainer taped to the door of the residence that I’m renting from and discovering the management company had no idea I was subleasing as well as it being a direct violation of the terms & conditions of the master lease for my “landlord” or as I should say “illegal landlord.” Claymine be unlawful detainer was for breeze in late payments from prior tenants before I moved in I took her word for it and found out several days ago that in fact nothing was paid for January or February even though I paid $1500 each month which obviously went for her units since her boyfriend moved out and she was taking care of the rent herself. Before I found out about the embezzlement of my rant I went ahead and signed a 30 day notice of termination of the lease and now in faced with having to re-cancel and withdraw my signature because of my discovery as well as my concern over my $1500 security deposit ever be returned to me. I’m not sure how lawful my plan is but it’s the only thing I can think of at this point that would guarantee the return of my security deposit In which I do need in order to move into her new apartment of my own. And addition I have done my own research with the new developments I’ve discovered that my building is under rent control stabilization ordinance. I’ve learned that very fact and the nature in which my illegal landlord is attempting to end my tenancy ( aside from the fact it was completely unlawful from the beginning) and the contract lease agreement we signed together is hense null & void apar from certain “implied” aspects of it- she is so responsible financially assist in the relocation and I’ve had several lawyers give me free consultation and advise me to even see her in court. I’m not looking to make this a drawnout situation but I need to protect myself for the next 30 days as I save for & secure my new place and she’s already become retaliatory showing up unannounced late at night harassing me and calling the police on me to have me removed. This individual obviously has no clue or even an elementary understanding of Tenant/Llord laws & rights let alone due responsibilities. Certainly didn’t seem to understand the severity of the UD she was named in. Please give me a call and help me with this


    Thank you,

    I am being bullied at HUD complex for independent seniors because I have PTDS and don’t like to socialize. I have brought this to the staff several times only to meet with that’s not happening. I did go by the office and heard then laughing that I deserve to be bullied because I don’t socialize. The bulling has now escalated to physical. You would be amazed what injuries can be inflicted without me being about to prove. I ended up in the ER for 5 hours because of this. The manager even refuses to move to another unit. Who can I report this to without getting thrown out – because that is what the tenant representative it implying will happen to me if I keep up trying to report this.

    Dear Ms. Obele, I received your letter on April 13th stating concerns of sanitation in my kitchen. I can assure you that my unit is clean, as I have a professional clean my home once a week for the past year. You can inspect the kitchen with the homemaker present, as well as a health inspector, so that we have documentation, and witnesses to your attempt of scapegoating the issue of rabid rat and cockroach infestation, due to poor management, and trash maintenance by Concord Housing.


    Many tenants of both buildings have been communicating about our concerns with heath hazards, and housing code violations here at Concord Housing . Rain pours down in my unit as I type this letter. It has been a consistent problem since the day I moved in. There is always flooding in the halls, and other units as well, causing fear of black mold and other respiratory problems. The trash is running over the trash receptacle, and is pouring out onto the floors in the trash rooms, because there is no adequate dumpster for trash disposal for all of the residents of Concord Housing. These are the breeding conditions that cause the infestation of both Concord Housing buildings with cockroaches and rats. People are being bitten by rats in their beds. Food is being contaminated by cockroaches and rats. The brand new stove that was put in my unit was destroyed by rats chewing the wires, and no longer works. The technician you sent to repair the stove said it needs to be replaced, and that no one deserves to live like this. The stove has still not been replaced or fixed for 2 months.


    Cockroaches are proven or suspected carriers of the organisms that cause the following infections:


    •Salmonellosis


    •Typhoid Fever


    •Cholera


    •Gastroenteritis


    •Dysentery


    •Leprosy


    •Plague


    •Campylobacteriosis


    •Listeriosis


    •Giardia


    Cockroaches can also trigger asthma and other allergies as well as spread E.coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus.


    Diseases directly transmitted by rodents:


    *Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome


    *Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome


    *Lassa Fever


    *Leptospirosis


    *Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)


    *Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever


    *Plague


    *Rat-Bite Fever


    *Salmonellosis


    *South American Arenaviruses (Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, Sabiá-associated hemorrhagic fever, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever)


    *Tularemia


    I request Concord Housing to actually fix the aforementioned problems, rather than use a false narrative to scapegoat me for the decay, and infestation of rats and cockroaches of both buildings.


    Respectfully Submitted,

    Grace Romero

    My name is Jordan Taylor, I am a community organizer in Poughkeepsie, in the Hudson Valley region of New York. The Rip Van Winkle House is a HUD LIHTC Section 8 building. After an electrical fire, the tenants of the building have been experiencing a lot of management issues and initimidation. They are afraid of being pushed out. How can we find out when the HUD contract ends? If it ends soon, how can we extend it? We need to know as soon as possible, thank you!
