  1. Marc,

    I have been listening to your Public Housing series and think your doing a very good job. You are looking at the privatetization scheme closely and the more one scrunitinzes the more the plan falls apart. Please explore the workers/union side of this very important issue. BTW, your guest, Mr Floyd Vines is impressive and shows us and should show the City that public housing residents are normal people like you & me and we cannot separate them & add on restrictions to their lease that wouldn’t exist in everyday leases. Baltimoreans that are involved with criminal justice system also gets thrown out of public housing–a sure way to increase our homeless population. Anyway, thank you.
