This letter is based on what I believe to be preferential treatment by those choosing who will be certified for shelter. I am just as poor as other people in need of this assistance. I applied and was in great need of moving to a clean apartment.
There is a black mole in and outside of the apartment I am now occupying, making me very sick. When Section 8 of Beeville Housing Authority certified me with a voucher, I took it to the Amber Stone Apartments because they had my application already approved with them but needed help from the Housing Authority. Employees at BHA denied giving me the voucher.
There is a big mess of lies between the administrative parties involved.
Between runs back and forth to clear this case, I missed out on a one-bedroom apartment that Amber Stone had already approved me for. I am very upset and ashamed of the system of people working for BHA.
I am not the only one complaining about these administrative parties involved. Some tenants are very unhappy that they cannot complain about these rights without being threatened with “eviction.” Employees of the sort are abusing their position and the government job they are hired to do – to help low-income “equally and fairly.”
Again, I repeat: All the people doing this should be replaced.
