Tenants Rights

I need tenants who have complaints about landlords/slumlords, property managers, city services, lack of adequate heat and essential services, CHA, etc to contact me at
MTOHOTLINE9@TENANTS-RIGHTS.ORG and let me know what issues they are dealing with. They can also call Metropolitan Tenants Organization (MTO) at 773-292-4988 between teh hours of 1pm-5pm Monday thru Friday and have a hotline counselor help them.
Thanks,
C Starks

What we need is a commitment in our neighbor from the mayor and our aldermen to enforce tenant rights and stop letting these slumlords pay them off to avoid taking their assessment to housing court instead of administrative hearings. They are the cause of poor CHA housing. I'm tired of hearing about low income people living in Bronzeville and we should only have home owners and black owned businesses here. Most black folks are low income because it's good for white folks and black people who think they have made it.

    I'd like to know more about the administrative hearing process as opposed to housing court. Maybe we could meet for coffee. I think class-ism is a problem in this area. The condition flourishes when people on both sides of the divide are too self interested. If the low income residents are pushed out, the same process will be used to displace the middle income folks when more affluent people want the area. Walmart is not a high end retailer, the current level of development seems to have a high regard for the low income dollars, I suggest we have respect for the low income people.

  • @jeffrey booker: Im sorry for not answering you when you commented but I really get tired of social media sometimes and make comments and go on with my life (smile). I would be happy to meet with you over a cup of coffee. Also, know that I am a hotline volunteer for Metropolitan Tenants Organization and I hear all kinds of horror stories from all classes of people about landlords, city services, CHA, etc. Let's meet and discuss.
