City Council Promises Fair Treatment For Public Housing Tenants

Fri, 04/09/2010 : WAMU 88.5

Elected officials in Alexandria are pushing to assure public housing tenants will be given fair notice when they have to relocate.

Hattie Thompson lived in the James Bland housing homes for three years. Last year, the Walgreen’s employee received a 120 day warning that she would need to move out. But she says she never heard from the housing authority again, until the week she needed to move. That was just days before Christmas.
