I remember when Dwaine Caraway and I went to City Hall over two years ago and spoke about these motels. The only person that spoke up in support from our own community was former councilman James Fantroy. A lot of people did a lot of work to make this happen. Thanks again to the city attorneys that fought the false allegations brought on by these slum owners in court. Thanks to Bishop Larry McGriff and the Church of the Living God along with the other pastors that supported him, and thanks to Dr. Beverly Mitchell Brooks of the Urban League. Back by prayer and determination, all of these people stood up to the plagues of the community. Unlike a lot of talk that you hear about who's doing what, these people stepped up.
Brad from Channel 8, as he has done from the beginning from this fight, does a great news piece. Check it out here.
