    Just to go on record as it having been said…. thanks for what you have done and are doing.

  • Thanks!

  • James Van Hoy

    Keep it up! We live in Detroit and are neighborhood activists since 1973 when we moved here. The only solution is for people to take matters in their own hands and not wait for someone else to take care of stuff. Thanks!

    Thank heavens someone is attentive enough, brave enough, angry enough, disgusted enough to SAY AND DO SOMETHING. Mayor Nagin is a terrible disappointment.

  • Amy

    woooooooooooooohoooooooooooooo !!!!!

  • Good for you for your activism.

  • Zanna

    Congratulations on your very hard work. I am sorry to hear of all the barriers being put in your way.

    I can’t believe what you have gone through and are continually facing. It is just not right that your own government would be acting against you, and that so many would see this as an opportunity for profit.


    I have never been to New Orleans, though we actually would have been there if things had turned out differently, right in the middle of the storm. I look forward to the opportunity to come and see the results of your efforts in the future.

    who is this S&A Contracting? and what is the money for. i am confused.

  • The City paid S&A to gut board and remediate the house under the NOAH program.
