Rotten Treatment At Reuther

Rotten Treatment At Reuther

Dear Editor;

Over 3000 immigrants, all of whom are elderly, handicapped or physically challenged are being treated like second-class citizens at the Roy Reuther Houses (Mitchell Lama) in Queens. I have had to take the manager to court in order to have repairs done that should have been done anyway! This has occurred more than once. Why should we have to struggle with the manager in order to receive repairs and maintenance services to create acceptable living conditions and a decent quality of life for the elderly and infirmed?

According to the Fair Housing Law, the manager has and continues to break the law regarding providing services and repairs, harassment and emotional distress.

There were two housing court orders to have repairs made and it was only after those orders did the manager finally make the repairs. And in addition, the manager harasses me and attempts to punish me because I exerted my rights as a tenant through the legal system.

His unfair actions are causing me constant stress.

As it is stated in the housing codes, I have certain rights as a tenant and if I am denied those rights, I then have the right to seek justice through the housing court.

For two years I have contacted all the appropriate city and state agencies regarding the matter. I have not heard from them.
