Petition To Save The Berkeley Housing Authority

We the undersigned believe that the City of Berkeley is on the front line of attacks by the Bush Administration's efforts to destroy the nation's housing assistance programs.

We therefore believe that progressives and humanitarians of the world need to draw the line in Berkeley, to stop these vicious attacks on these much needed housing assistance programs throughout the nation.

We the People believe that if the right-wing agenda of the Bush Administration is successful in destroying the Berkeley Housing Authority, other Housing Authority's across the nation may follow suit and allow themselves to be eliminated.

Therefore, We the People urge the City Council and Mayor to do everything that is possible to save the Berkeley Housing Authority for future generations of low-income people that may need housing assistance in the City of Berkeley.

We the undersigned petition the Berkeley City Council and Mayor to stop any and all attempts or efforts by the City Manager to negotiate with Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to dismantle the Berkeley Housing Authority or to allow it to fall into receivorship.

We the undersigned petition Berkeley's City Councilmembers and Mayor to stop any or all efforts by the City Manager to consolidate the Berkeley Housing Authority with any other agency or entity which would result in the loss of local control by the City of Berkeley to administer it's own Section 8 housing programs or it's public housing programs.

We the undersigned petition the City of Berkeley to replace all future HUD funding shortfalls out of the City's General Fund, as a means to properly maintain the Berkeley Housing Authority for future generations of the poor, elderly and disabled.

We the undersigned pray that the City of Berkeley listens to the voice of the People from all walks of life and destinations, who for humanitarian reasons sign this petition as a means to save the Berkeley Housing Authority for the future generations of Berkeley's citizens.

    This issue is URGENT. If Berkeley refuses to stand up to the determination of the Bush regime to utterly abandon the poor, the disabled, the aged ... if Berkeley won't stand firm against this rising fascism, who in America will! It's MORE than a local iss

    HUD's cuts I am sure contriute to the problem. Berkeley needs control over its Housing Authority in order to serve best those people (working, disabled and elderly persons) who need and diserve housing assistance. Let the CIty help!

    It would be an absolute act of 'crimes against humanity' for the Bush Administration to eliminate affordable housing in Berkeley.
