Hi, People Who Believe In Fairness

The petition is about fairness in the federal subsidized housing programs that are being shredded by the massive sequestration budget cuts, and placing the poor, elderly, and disabled at risk of higher rent increases, the loss of their housing vouchers, and homelessness! Too many executives in so-called nonprofit housing organizations all across the nation make upwards of $200,000 to $300,000 a year, off of tax payer subsidized housing projects!

That's why I created a petition to Nonprofit Housing Developer Executives which says:

"Due to sequestration budget cuts, we demand that all nonprofit and for profit so-called affordable housing developers freeze the rents on the poor. We also demand that the so-called affordable housing developers scale back all executive salaries above $125,000 annually, and impose a salary cap of $125,000 for all executives in organizations that have local and federal tax payer subsidized housing projects! "

Nice work Lynda.
Here is another idea, ALL employees of non-profits receiving Federal money for housing should have to line up for, and reside in, homeless shelter beds.

This would either create many more shelter beds and better shelter conditions, or open up well paying non-profit jobs to homeless shelter dwellers.

Hello Lynda:

I have been following your stories about affordable housing hijinks for several years. I am a postdoctoral researcher who forced HUD, HUD's Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate The John Stewart Company. Currently I am working on several investigations involving fraud and public corruption by government agencies, nonprofits and social service providers. I am lobbying Governor Brown, the California State Legislature and the U.S. Senate to force state/federal law enforcement investigations into what I have exposed. I am carbon copying my correspondence about this to local, regional and national news media.

I specialize in Freedom of Information (FOI) requests and I'm studying investigative reporting through my membership with IRE.org — I want to assist your investigative journalism because we both have personal interests in the affordable housing business and its government administration as well as their mutual victims. Please contact me.

Sincerely,
John E. Colby, Ph.D. (UC Santa Cruz Computer Science '07)
