You cannot classify all people who receive Section 8 housing or live in those hotels as bad or a problem, that is just wrong.

Ok, Maddie, go up to the Home Suites and hang out for a day in the lobby. Then you tell me what you see. Recently a friend had her parents come into town and they always stayed there. The CLERK AT THE DESK told them they really don't want to stay there and recommended the Holiday Inn.

Actually Barbara I have been in a similar living situation myself and don't appreciate the stereotype. I understand that there are problems with some, but not with all is my point.

Selling the house before this becomes a reality, then the price will drop to nothing. Wonder how the WPD will love, dealing with this monstrosity. Good luck Lakeview!
