Let’s cast aside all the Washington Political Drama. Americans need help….and Americans need it now. People that live in Public Housing are entitled to the same dignity as everyone else. This coming from a journalist that lived for years in NYC public Housing for years before becoming the first one in my family to attend college. The Patterson Houses in the Bronx, and also the Throggs Neck Houses. No one should have to live like what we witnessed on this tour. I’m an optimist by nature. Hopefully help is on the way with this Federal Monitor.
