Link Roundup

If you live in Baltimore City, you won’t want to miss this important meeting regarding the second round of proposed irresponsible cuts to the fire department.  Your home and family could be at risk!

Yet another mortgage fraudster who operated in a low-income part of Philly has been caught and charged with fraud.  Slumlords and scam artists think if they prey on people in low-income areas they won’t get caught — WRONG!

Speaking of mortgage fraud — a Baltimore man won’t be tasting freedom for a while after scamming several lenders out of over $1 million for his “shabby” houses.

A Clinton, Maryland woman has been found guilty of mortgage fraud.  Despite receiving income from the District of Columbia Housing Authority (Section 8 rent payments), she allowed the mortgages on all of her properties to go into default and pocketed the money.

Congrats to Poppleton residents for rallying around a neighborhood park, saving it from a stalled City development plan!

Henrico (Richmond, VA area) neighbors were up in arms over two vacant properties managed by an out of state firm — Channel 8 news investigated and got results.

Hamilton residents — you’re getting a new Royal Farms whether you want it or not.  [I have to say, I agree with “HS” who left the comment “That’s the problem with one party politics–they don’t even have to pretend that they work for you.”]

Money-laundering charges were suddenly dropped against the owner of multiple blighted properties in Baltimore, Stewart Sachs.
