“We are tired of our life conditions, the streets are in poor condition and there are no lights at night, vandals take advantage of the situation and break into our houses when people leave to work.
In order to use the public transportation system, we have to walk through empty lots to get to the bus stop, on those lots several residents had been assaulted.
A woman was taking her kid to the kindergarten the other day, When a thief snatched her purse in broad daylight and ran away.
We are scared to go out at night due to the attacks and we worry about our house integrity when going to work “ said one of the residents.
Another member of the community commented the following:”We have sent out several letters to the City Hall and we have been ignored.
During the elections the mayor asked for our vote, and said he would fix the problems, but so far he has done nothing. In several occasions that houses were burglarized, police does not even show up Here, the mayor has forgotten about us , we pay our taxes and we call out the authorities to address our needs, especially because the children living in our community are suffering the most”.
“Among other issues, there is a great number of puddles all over the streets, this generates mosquitoes and flies threatening our health” concluded another affected neighbor .
