Pay your rent like everyone else.
Great! More tax dollars to reward incompetence. What could possibly go wrong?
The City of Richmond has a concentration of poverty problem, not an eviction problem. It has this concentration primarily because of the numerous housing projects, but also due to its inability to annex the wealthier surrounding counties. Some of the highest rates of eviction were by Richmond Redevelopment which runs the housing projects. Thus, in spite of the NYT article, there was nothing that needed “fixing” in the eviction process. What needs fixing is the concentration of poverty — i.e., Mayor Stoney: eliminate the failed experiment called Public Housing. (And, as a bonus, you will have improved schools without building any more school buildings.)
Pay your rent or GET OUT! What part of the lease agreement you signed is now baffling to you?
Mission accomplished! Just like the potholes.
I noticed that this whole initiative leaves out any discussion about the hardship, inconvenience, and expense to the landlords.
Eviction is not a simple process, time and lost income, the tenant vandalizes the property in revenage before moving out.
But sure, let’s create another us versus them issue instead of addressing the issue. Pay your rent and be respectful and you won’t get evicted.
This is all from my experience. I see it happen quite frequently. People rent more space then they can afford, fill it up with rented furniture, trying to act like a big shot when they dont have the funds.
Lets keep bailing out people that don’t pay their bills… Time to vote Republican.
I concur with all of the above. How much longer is Stoney in office? Can’t be done soon enough.
To those of you who’ve never been in the position of being evicted: Karma is a bitch& if it happens to you I promise you’ll feel differently about this initiative.
Leave it to a Democrat to abolish all sense of personal responsibility…Oh, it’s not my fault that I’m getting evicted…bring in the Democrat to bail me out at the taxpayer’s expense. I can’t agree more that Stoney can’t get gone soon enough.
