The fear that Brentwood will turn like Antioch is well founded.
Section 8 is a federal program,(H.U.D.) who OK's the vouchers and then the County Housing certifies the homes.
The city is not allowed to even know where section 8 lives and if they do, like the list that was pretended in Antioch it is a serious breach of confidentiality and a prosecutable crime.
So let the lies and witch hunt about section 8 cease.
No city not even Discovery Bay has the right to block or impede section 8.

Redevelopment is the real evil. It is an open credit line that allows any city council to spend without approval of the voter and believe you, me Brentwood spent millions.
20% of that is set aside for non working or affordable housing they like to call it.
They don't tell you about it because you'd FREAK or that is saved for last to suck in home buyers believing they are buying into an up scale community. They won't tell you about cause it is the poison no town wants out.
Brentwood is still in the honeymoon phase, like Antioch was not too many years back before low life moved into their S.E. section but in a short time the redevelopment scam will catch up with us too.
No spilling over, it will come from within in and in the form of apartments. Perhaps on top of our golf courses if they want to, but mark my words it's coming no matter how much realtors want to pretend so you will buy into the con.
They may do it like Antioch is now by creating impassable code inspections for rentals then demolishing violations in old town next to your house or on the next block. Makes no difference, it will send home prices into a tailspin. Those who thought they had a nice home won't be able to give it away and if they stay won't be safe with a machine gun in the house.

The beauty of the government's con job program (redevelopment) is that it makes your property tax not only pay to demolish your home (I saw them laughing) it uses your property tax to build apartments for non working people who don't even yet live here, let alone help pay taxes. Then it gives it away to corporations who are waiting in the wing and live elsewhere and could care less if the town falls in the gutter.
Our government has turned to prey upon us working class and home owners. I'm just as mad and depressed as you are.
Only reason I know was I saw it happen in Antioch. Their homeowners are to busy working to show up at their City council's study session this week.
We here in Brentwood might do well to though.
It may give us insight as to how our bad boys in government will lead us down the garden path like they did those sorry people in Antioch.

Atleast you're realistic. I made a comment like that one time and some people said, "section 8 is everywhere, even Danville has it." Ya, the old people maybe. I'm already seeing some signs of it. My home is up for sale as I type. Unfortunately, it may take a while to sell. A lot of people were given home loans that they normally wouldn't qualify for. So far, Brentwood now has close to 800 homes in foreclosure.

Section 8 isnt the problem. it's the people who abuse it and the section 8 workers who ignore it.

Listen up wanna be's
Section 8 was a bait and switch.
The fines will come after the only game left in town 'Home owners'.
Section 8 is a federal program!
Do you think they will let the city push them around?
The cracks in the sidewalk are just a means to get probable cause to enter the property. They are going to rape the down town.
SE Antioch will stand by and act like finally they got what we got!
CRIME!
Whats the use...
Your idiots!
Look at the city staff in Brentwood and where they came from "ANTIOCH" and the PIT!
Once the highway 4 bypass is built they will all be moving along again!
Then they retire here.
Your all losers, You can litigate quality of life.

It was never section 8 that's why you guys are LAME.
Section 8 is FEDERAL, and I don't mean Glover.
They just used section 8 and then switch it to homeowner down town.
They used section 8 and Antioch bought it just like the BART village and all the new homes they can't sell and they keep pretending the public votes in.
THEY'RE STILL BUILDING AND CAN'T SELL ANYTHING
NOW THAT'S LOSERSVILLE!

Whites aren't hanging out doing violent crimes. Don't get me wrong- there are many white trash folk in Antioch wreaking havoc. But let's face it, the section 8 folks transplanted here from the black areas bring the shit with them. I'm not a racient, just a realist. It is what it is.

It's not fair to judge a person by the culture/heritage that person belongs to, but the statistics speak for themselves unfortunately. That said, I understand and believe that you are doing your best and want a safe place for your kids to grow. Based on your comments and self control, I believe you have a firm belief of your self worth, and are grounded, no doubt. It's the section 8 system-using, no accountability, self-entitlement, government dependants that are screwing up Antioch. There are other folks from other cultural groups that are just as bad and just as responsible of course. I live in a small house and pay out a $hitload of money just to live. The problem is, the system rewards those that fail and screws those that succeed through hard work and sacrifice. This alone makes the responsible people resentful. Anyone that drives highway 4 knows sacrifice.

Just trying to understand...Why do black people love to call each other the N word? Is it a sign of affection?

I've never loved and hated a word at the same time.

I think it's a little of everything, not just sec 8 and there ARE a lot of black people on sec 8, so it may look like we are generalizing.

12% of the US are black and yet 44% of the prisons are black. People are just frustrated.

Glad you are trying to make better for your family.

I like how cute mixed children are. The FBI reported that "Hate Crime" is up 8%. But when the Media reports it, they talk about Rally's bye Black groups. No one ever talks about Blacks harming Whites over race. Or Asians killing Hispanics or middle easterns killing Asians or so on. Why is that? Seems the media wants to teach us about not to generalize but they themselves do the same thing. This only fuels hate towards towards whites from many black people. I thought this was about low lifes sucking off of section 8. You people ramble on about the exterior of the problem. For blacks to say "Whites are attacking us for being black" is as ignorant as the few whites who do commit violent crimes against blacks for being black. Lately, I think Black on White crimes are much higher. At least on the west coast. This is the liberal backbone of America (Northern Cali). Yet, San Francisco seems to displace more blacks every year while their rich city lawyers back the NAACP to help displace the blacks to East County who are on federal aid programs. See the picture here? Why don't you put section 8 in say Danville or Alamo or Pacific Heights in San Francisco or Bellmont or Clairmont or Peadmont Or one of these other Monts?

How silly of me to even suggest such a thing.:/ What is the real agenda here people. They want whites and blacks to fight out here to hide the real motive. Property Investors having the Government pay for their expensive homes for the next 10-20 years or to remove the high crime neighborhoods and pushing them as far east away from expensive real estate in Southern San Francisco.
