What happened to Bank One?

Why is there constant emergency legislation?

Last night during the City Managers Report did Doug say that we will have an additional 1,800 foreclosures here in Middletown?
I thought the housing market was getting better.
Or is it just not getting better here in
Middletown?

So, the DOUGMEISTER has proclaimed that Middletown will have roughly 1,800 more foreclosures this year? As Roseanne Rosanadana of Saturday Night Live fame would say, "what a swell job that Dougmeister does for us! Just think of the additional residential demolitions that whiz kid will have his staff oversee in the coming year?"

Please compare the 1800 foreclosure numbers to the total housing stock numbres Adkins put in his UC paper to purge Section 8 from Middletown. It is an extremely high % of residential stock. Also, the funds from the state AG and the demolition are used and depleted. There are no funds to destroy 1800 units.
 
Just like Ohio having the nation's highest costs for public higher education is not good for Ohio (Miami, OSU, UC), likewise, having such high % of foreclosures is just outrageous. The city of Middletown has failed its residents repeatedly, but few seem to care.
 
Tragic.

Acclaro, Over The Hill, Vivian, Etc. -

With very, very few exceptions, too few MUSA participants appreciated the volumes of verifiable facts presented over the past five years that documented repeated waste of HUD funds, poor planning, misguided programs, etc.

The Dougmeister, Marty Kohler, Kyle Fooks, Angela Tucker, Neil Barille, Ron Olson and Judy Gilleland were repeatedly "left off the hook" by those who could and should have joined forces with us who unveiled many dirty little secrets, plus some whoppers!
