  • Thanks Ro,
    Given my experience working on gang and crime issues in Bridgeport, I feel AAC's comment is ill-informed.
    In the immediate area surround my home the gang, and corresponding drug issues, center on houses that have no Section 8 or CHA connections. Each of the "trouble" properties are owned by individuals who own and manage multiple properties in Chicago while living outside of Cook County. If anything, Bridgeport has an Absentee Landlord problem.

  • John W. More equal wealth based on more equal work

    Dan, how do you know who has a Section 8 voucher? Is there a Website that lists addresses of properties currently the beneficiaries of that program?
