Cleveland councilman fed up with property management company takes issue straight to Washington, DC

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Council member Kevin Conwell has run out of patience with RHM Management, and is now taking his case straight to the United States Congress and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“Marcia Fudge is first on my list as she is on her way to become the Secretary of HUD. She knows Cleveland and she is familiar with some of the deplorable conditions that some families have been forced to live under,” Conwell described.

Conwell recently wrote a letter to Fudge, HUD and Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, begging for help and direction as to how he can get fair and proper housing for many residents of the Boardwalk Apartments.

“I can’t sleep at night knowing a child has to deal with mice, rodents, and mold because of bureaucratic tape and bogus excuses. I am tired of all the delays and finger pointing. These families deserve better and I intend to get them what they deserve,” said Conwell.

The Ward 9 boss was quick to give 19 News credit for what he said was exposing the truth.

“Your reporting on this issue forced me and others to take the lead. You let people see what I and others have been missing. We owe a debt of gratitude to you and 19 News. I am not ashamed to say it. 19 News made us do the right thing and we are straight to Washington and I won’t stop until we get action.”
