“We have all these houses. Why can’t we fix up these houses? Our homeless rate would go down. The Section 8 list, the housing list, would not be ten thousand strong. I got my housing letter. I’m actually ninety-five hundred eighty-four on the waiting list. That’s where I am. Why I am nine thousand something and there are all these houses in Baltimore city that are vacant, not just in this area but throughout the whole city? Why can’t we go and fix these houses up?”
