I have been following the

I have been following the controversy regarding the Petaluma Hotel. One thing that needs to be mentioned is that Petaluma has some of the best low income housing available in the county.
I am hoping that these former residents have applied for Section 8 housing which they should have done years ago because the waiting list is very long. We also have PEP Housing here in Petaluma for low income seniors (age 62 and above) and the rents are very low and probably lower than what they were paying at the hotel. Yes, you do have to apply and go on a waiting list, but I think the residents of the hotel were getting a bit too complacent, and no one was anticipating that Petaluma is growing and the downtown area is becoming a very desirable location. I am sure the woman who was on your show is aware of the social services here in Petaluma and hopefully she was counseling the residents to start taking advantage of other avenues available to them. I think that would be a better use of the time and the energy they are spending on trying to get "their message across". I am a low income person and have taken advantage of all that Petaluma has to offer. I am so grateful to live here.

Thank you so much for your

Thank you so much for your comment. Indeed I have been referring everyone to Petaluma People's Services for 3 months. The people there have been very responsive to this situation. It is a very valuable service for those over 62. I am 61!
I do not feel I am wasting my time trying to get renter's rights established in our lovely Petaluma.

this is America, the land

this is America, the land where profit comes before human dignity.

If I purchase an appartment complex in america, I have NO responsibility for the poor and old. They are getting in the way of profit. Just becasue I'm a little guy not a corportation it does not mean that I can't make a profit at the cost of others.
