Why are we giving this developer public money to finance the project? I don't think that this is right. Is there anything I can do to stop this?

This is an authoritarian approach to Americans lives. Also nothing but more government promoting Socialism.

Carter states it would not have been possible without the help of youe manditory tax dollars.
This is a lie. A large percentage of the tax payer money goes to redtape nonsense. The government gets in the way when the free market will do it cheaper and better!

Its very likely that the state mandated that they had to have a certain percentage of apartments set aside for subsidized housing like Section 8. The rest of the apartments would be at full market rate. Without this mandate, the DECD and CHFA would not approve or finance such a project.

There's so much promise in these wonderful old buildings, yet the management team that runs these is allowing them to deteriorate, and the quality of living is fast approaching that of the North End of Hartford. From stabbings, violent altercations, drug use in the hallways, and continual police summons.
It would almost be preferable to allow these buildings to fall down than to allow the blight that the management company encourages.

So that people on public assistance can bring down the quality of living for those that earn a living
