Fresno City Councilmember Steve Brandau is 100 percent right regarding “slum housing.”
I am a process server, and I work south Fresno. Every Section 8 apartment I go to is absolutely filthy. Kentucky Fried Chicken boxes and buckets, candy and burger wrappers, dirty diapers, cigarette butts, and beer and soda cans are everywhere.
When some people open the door, all I see is filth and infants crawling in it! The carports are littered when there’s a trash dumpster a few feet away. How many times have the taxpayers rebuilt the Section 8 housing across from Veterans Hospital?
Within a few years, it’s back to being uninhabitable. Who’s fault is that? When are the tenants held accountable for the rats, roaches, ants and other insects or vermin?
Never miss a local story.
Steve Brandau, please run for mayor!
