      Stop Without Cause Evictions of Section 8 Renters

      Single, Black. Low-Income Senior Citizen With Disabled Daughter Facing No-Cause Eviction From Home Continually Rented By Them For More Than 28 Years Under Section 8 Program

      23 June 2012 - 3AM

      Right now I am feeling drained and more or less discombobulated. I am a 65 year old single, low-income, Black woman with a disabled daughter. We have lived in this house at 5826 NE 15th Avenue in Portland, Oregon continually for more than 28 years under HUD’s Section 8 rental assistance program. Section 8 pays a portion of the rent and I pay the remaining $321 rent per month plus utilities. My primary income is Social Security -- roughly $700 monthly. My daughter lives with me and I take care of her. I am paid approximately $180 per month as my daughter’s Personal Care Attendant.

      This week my home was sold to a new owner and yesterday I was served with a 60 day No Cause Eviction notice. Eviction papers indicate that the new owner intends to renovate this house and re-rent it at a higher rate following the renovation. The papers I have received name a Marisa O. Gholson as the new owner. I have never met her to my knowledge. A business decision -- a business decision. ‘Urban renewal - Black removal’.

      The human toll of this ‘business decision’ has sent my internal emotions spiraling. How do I find a new place for us? Where do I get the money needed to effectuate such a monumental move after 28 plus years? Where do I begin my search -- Craigslist has been suggested and I will search Craigslist during this journey. What do I do with all of the things we have accumulated over the years? Again, Craigslist has been suggested….

      In the end, what will happen? I have been told that all of the expenses and efforts to find a place and in relocating and physically moving are mine to bare. What will happen? Time will tell…. In the meantime, I have shared our story with you. I am Lulu R. Johnson and you can reach me at: BlackParentSpeaks@juno.com

      because I LOVE Michael Baisden. He is smart, & entertaining & he tells it like it I-S is!!!! (even tho he blatantly cheats, along with George, every time there is a guy/girl competition----he thinks it's funny, but I NEVER have!!!) Nevertheless, he is VERY MUCH respected & honest when it comes to telling us what we need to know. Is that why he is being taken off?

      It was a great, informative show. He asked about and discussed subjects no one else would touch! Adults, as well as youngsters were included in answering.

      I don't know how much more of their tactics they think we are going to take. I no longer work and will be available to take as many as I can to the poles on election day. Michael Baisden was on point !
