Support The Troops?
From Pensacola Beach Blogger
I learned that my state senator, Charley Clary, thinks landlords need two months rent
A lot of the people in my area are in the military and they are subject to being deployed on minimum notice. Because there isn't enough housing on the bases, they have to rent and the housing allowance has not kept pace with the increases caused by hurricanes.
Right now, to move in you need around $300 for utility deposits plus first and last months' rent and a security deposit. To move into the duplex at the end of my street, that amounts to almost $5,000.
This is getting obscene, and the troops are already getting screwed over locally because of the tight rental market.
Charley, your Momma brought you up better than that.
