|Councilman Eugene Needs To Hear From YOU! It will literally help OPEN HIS EYES!|
HERE'S THE EASY TO SIGN ONLINE PETITION
The story in a Q-wrapped nutshell:
Owner of a home dies more than a dozen years ago. A fire leads to the destruction of the building. Vacant lot lies fallow for a decade. No heirs come forward to claim the deed. Scam artists create fake deed and claim ownership in order to build apartment building. Tired of vacant lot, diverse group of neighbors come together to create community garden. Scammers come back and try to lock them out, aggressively. Lawsuit filed by the gardeners. Scammers fight back. Stand-off. Elected officials offer help. Plan hatched to create fund to pay heirs for land if they come forward - essentially an escrow. Councilman claims to want to help, but needs show of support from the neighborhood. Gardeners seek support. You come along and offer to help by signing petition and calling Councilman's office!
