Tell Us Another One, Buddy!

In Michigan, the head of the state’s housing authority went bankrupt.

This home builder of many years is being sued for default in several locations. In one of his Michigan developments, the streets were never put in. Now the city of Monroe is putting in the streets and billing the residents. He also left these homeowners in the dark. Residents have had no street lights because he never paid the electricity bill.

When a reporter contacted him, he said, “Nobody told me.” As if a home builder does not know that homes need streets and streetlights.
