Gloves are off with Councilwoman Sterling
'Basic city services define the quality of life in a neighborhood. When the services are not working, the neighborhoods suffer. Our neighborhoods should not be confronted with blighted conditions, including drug dealers, abandoned homes, unsuitable housing, and unkept alleys. I will work with all neighborhood residents and landlords to the best of my ability to eliminate these problems. But I can't do these things without you.'
Your words on the site devoted to District 3.
Allow MOI to give you some things to ponder.
Mr. Ron Eisler, owner of the El Capri has stepped forward and put $30,000.00 into the property. Mr. and Mrs.
David Natal, owners of the property have put over $40,000.00 into their property. Mr. and Mrs. Armando Garcia, owners of the property located at 150-178 N Calaveras Street, have put $15,000.00 into their property.
I could go on and on about absent landlords who have come forward in these hard economic times to put their hard earned cash into properties located in your district. More exact, a road and neighborhood that is challenged to say the least.
I could tell you of the gentleman who owns 433 N Calaveras, who tries to do the right thing and is met with challenge after challenge in dealing with the drug dealers and punters using the property as a gateway to the alley behind his property to sell and get 'poison'.
Councilwoman Sterling, you crow to whole world about how grad it was of you to secure more
affordable housing for Fresno anf your district. I must be right daft. How can you be pleased with
what you have done on my road or in the district? Are you that obtuse?
Councilwoman Sterling, there are many affordable units for rent on my road and in my
neighborhood. These are units that are not owned by 'slumlords' but concerned members
of the community who try to do the morally right thing.
Please tell MOI, how so many units can sit empty and you bang on about the need for
affordable housing. Tell the good folks who spend THEIR money, not the 'public purse', what they
must do to get folks to rent affordable, clean, safe units. Do they have to go broke trying?
Do they have to pay taxes in Fresno and get no support for their cash put into the 'public purse'.
What do I tell Mr. Eisler, Mr. and Mrs. Naltal, Mr. and Mrs. Garcia? That Councilwoman
Sterling is so busy that she can not see what they are suffering to make HER district a
better place to live.
When do they get the message that YOU, an elected official, given the sacred trust to improve the district, are not concerned. That YOU do not see the forest for the trees.
Councilwoman Sterling, you were made aware of the 'slumlord' who owns the
property at 105 N Calaveras, and yet you picked that property to spend the majority
of your time when you visited the road on Saturday.
Folks who live at 150-178 N Calaveras barely got a look at by YOU as you marched right
past to find you place to park. They had seating and you did not use.
You never once gace a look in at the El Capri and the massive effort to make it a brilliant
property on the road.
You did tell MOI that tenants, unhappy with MOI and his efforts to make them Civic
Minded and Morally Responsible, had contacted your office.
Councilwoman Sterling, you crow about how much you care and what you are doing
to rid the community of 'poison' and get affordable housing for the district. Yet you fail to ACT.
The problems in the alley are not a surprise to you. The number of vacant affordable units
on my road and in my neighborhood are not new to you.
What part of stupid am I not getting?
Shame on you. Shame on you for letting Mr. Eisler, Mr. and Mrs. Natal, Mr. and Mrs. Armando
Garcia down. Shame on you for making them spend monies and receive no active support
from your office to get units rented.
Shame on you for letting the problems at 433 N Calaveras and the alley behind continue to
harm the folks who live on that part of the road.
Councilwoman Sterling, I would like answers and I would like them NOW. The good
folks who have bet the farm on your road want answers NOW.
Mind, you do not have a report costing the 'public purse' $155,000.00 to guide you. I am more
than happy to provide you with all of the proof you need and I will not charge the 'public purse'
$155,000.00 to enlighten you.
I will let the world know of this letter and I will await your reply.
Councilwoman Sterling, this is not background, and it does require a reply.

The gloves are off. I am right tired of the award winning smile with not a thought in the loaf. Councilwoman Sterling must think me right daft. I will wack her and wack her and hope that some part of what she misses settles in her loaf. Can Councilwoman Sterling be that obtuse?
