Assemblyman Ortiz Sponsors Foreclosure Workshop
Politicians usually have a lot to say no matter what the subject. After all, it's part of their job. So in a world where our elected officials are unusually quiet when it comes to the foreclosure/financial crisis (read meltdown) Assemblyman Felix Ortiz has chosen to take action while other elected officials have refused to help their suffering constituents. Brooklyn has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the state. Yet local officials for the most part have chosen to turn a blind eye to those vicitumized by predatory lending, illegal foreclosures, tortuous loan modification attempts and lenders who refuse to help home owners under any circumstance. We applaud Assemblyman Ortiz for sponsoring this foreclosure workshop. A special thank you also goes out to Reverend Nestor Osorio of the Emmanuel Pentecostal Church for hosting the event. We look forward to working with Assemblyman Ortiz's office in the very near future to conduct another workshop.
