Sell outs

  My issue with the whole, "let's clean up the foreclosure mess and demolish everything" proposal, would be the sell-out factor. 

These people don't live here.   My neighborhood has become a craps game for developers and local politicos. 

We in the city are witnessing a gross abuse of public funds, possibly a criminal misuse of public funds.  It sucks and I am sick of it.
