I must say that i am

I must say that i am personally discusted not about a change from senior living, but comments made by the wyalusing borough council members and of all people the mayor. Lets be realistic here, what is being offered here is not to hurt the community, bring in motorcycle gangs or bums. I moved to the western side of pennsylvania because as a veteran on a fixed income, i could not afford to live in the area i spent my childhood and much of my adult years in because rental property owners became GREEDY when the gas industry arrived to the area. One person in this artical mentioned what happens when the gas boom is over? Well realistic answer is all the Greedy landlords end up with vacant properties because they are going to continue to try and rent there properties for well over the income range of the average bradford county resident. Instead of detering people because they are wealthy, just because someone doesnt have as much money as another doesnt mean they dont deserve to have affordable housing. And back to the following comment by the mayor of wyalusing, Mayor Jean Reinhart said one of the concerns that she’s heard is that Wyalusing could become a “dumping ground for low-income folks and we don’t want that.”, I personally hope Mayor Reinhart that the low income folks that you are neglecting read this article and file a complaint against you and your council for discrimination.
