The Jamestown Lawyer would like to highlight the comments of Councilman Rabb. I would never dispute that there are bad tenants. In fact, I have stories that would probably curl your hair. However, the missing piece in these discussions seems to be that Jamestown has some (very vocal and REIA-approved) slumlords who do not maintain properties and are quick to claim poverty due to tenants at every instance. As long as their hyperbole is taken at face value, no constructive changes in the condition of local housing will be made.
