Owner of Oak Cliff Apartment Complex Sees Nothing Wrong with Mold, Drug Baggies, and Unhealthy Apartments

This article is in today’s Dallas Morning News. Read for yourself.
The blog Katy’s Exposure also says what I already know, having lived in an apartment with mold.

And regarding the skin rashes from the carpet, that is from the mold coming from the vents.

The reasoning that such conditions are OK just because it’s Section 8 housing has nothing to do with the interior quality in the apartments. Nobody is asking the owner to put a fountain or media room in the middle of the complex. You take the government money to provide safe housing for lower-income people.  That means the outside environment should be safe as well as the inside.  In addition to mold, I have lived places with termites, roaches pouring out of crevices, rats, mice, and other issues.  I was blessed to be able to move; everyone is not. 
This article disgusts me. Poor people deserve to live without mold, drug baggies all over, and leaking walls. This owner should be ashamed of himself, but obviously he is not.

This is a front page article in the Sunday edition of the Dallas Morning News; it doesn’t get much bigger than that. Hopefully some elected official reads this article and does something about it. It’s obvious that the owner could care less.

    Hi Michael, I see you have experienced what it's like to have mold coming from the air vents and turning everything black. This scumlord in that article has so many excuses! Does he really think anyone is going to feel sorry for him! This story is representative of many of these huge mutifamily, affordable housing investors and their mold infested apartments which are also in apartment buildings not considered low income. These people will deny anything is wrong while staring at it or with photos to prove it. In my case, my attorney even helped the defendants – Riverstone Residential, based in DALLAS. That information is on the site you mentioned – http://katysexposure.wordpress.com. I am going to your facebook page and become a fan!!! katy
