New Orleans Public Housing Crisis: ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE!

It's Time to Take the Fight to the People Responsible!


A list of phone numbers, emails, and office and home addresses around
the U.S. of those involved in the demolition of New Orleans Public
Housing. Also, good links for information, and action ideas that work.

Alphoso Jackson

Home Address:

Hilton Head Island, SC 29926
Home Phone: (843) 681-2272 (Give him a call any time of day or night.
Also, try writing "For Sex, call 843-681-2272" on bathroom stalls in
your city.)

William Hairston
Alphonso's friend and HUD/HANO back-room deal buddy. (They also live in the same neighborhood).
William might be able to get Alphonso to make the right choice if we ask him enough.

95 Matthews Drive
Hilton Head Island, SC 29925
Phone: (843) 342-5798 and (843) 681-9987 (Home phones for the home he
shares with his wife Starletta Hairston, a Republican and former town
councilwoman. Did Bush find every Black Republican in the U.S. to work
for him to try and get himself some credibility? Guess what, it didn't
work! We know a snake when we see one, no matter what color it is!)

Keith B. Key, CEO of KBK Enterprises
535 Quails End
Powell, OH 43065
(Mr. Key recently donated money to Barack Obama's Presidential
Campaign. Better not let Alphonso Jackson see that, Mr. Key. See http://news.nationaljournal.com/articles/071004nj2.htm
Apparently, Mr. Key doesn't let the fact that Jackson is a Bush lackey
carrying out Republican anti-poor housing plans stop him from cashing
in on it, contrary to his political leanings. A quote from a letter
Barack Obama sent to Pres. Bush: "I urge you to abandon all plans to
demolish federally-assisted housing in New Orleans, Louisiana until
there is a comprehensive plan to meet the region’s extensive affordable
housing needs." From http://thinkonthesethings.wordpress.com/2007/12/18/obama-calls-on-president-to-protect-affordable-housing-in-new-orleans/)

(go to "projects" and scroll down to the information on St. Bernard.
Note just above it where it states KBK is "...one of the most
sought-after real estate developers by ...[groups]... looking for ways
to maximize capital and programmatic return on investment." It's all
about the Benjamins.)

demand that the HUD plan have one-for-one replacement of affordable
housing units before beginning work or not?)
-Incessant Phone Calls

-Flyers about their involvement in this debacle passed out in their rich neighborhoods
-Spreading this information to everyone you know!
