Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara has penned a heartfelt letter to the owner of the Super 8 Motel in Rotterdam, expressing his deep concern over the abrupt eviction of residents that occurred last week. The incident, which took place on Tuesday morning, July 18th, has raised serious questions about the welfare and safety of vulnerable individuals in the community.
The Super 8 Motel in Rotterdam has been known to provide temporary shelter to individuals facing financial hardships and personal difficulties. However, the recent eviction of long-term residents without any prior notice has left them in a state of uncertainty and vulnerability.
In the letter addressed to the motel's owner, Assemblyman Santabarbara emphasized the importance of understanding the challenges faced by the community, especially in dealing with poverty and ensuring the well-being of its residents. Displacement, under such circumstances, only adds to the existing hardships faced by those in need, and it is crucial to consider the potential consequences of such actions.
"I am writing to express my profound concern and disappointment regarding a recent incident that occurred at the Super 8 Motel in Rotterdam. I have learned that individuals who were already residing in your facilities, especially those facing financial hardships and personal difficulties, were unexpectedly evicted on Tuesday morning, July 18th, without any prior notice. I must emphasize that this action is deeply troubling and entirely unacceptable," wrote Assemblyman Santabarbara in his letter.
The Assemblyman's letter also urged the Super 8 Motel owner to discontinue these eviction practices immediately and implement measures to ensure that similar incidents do not occur at any of the company's locations in the future. It stressed the importance of addressing this urgent situation and finding a suitable resolution for the affected individuals.
The Assemblyman's expression of concern comes as a reflection of his commitment to the well-being and welfare of the community he represents. He eagerly awaits a response from the motel's owner, hoping to hear about the steps that will be taken to rectify the situation and ensure that the rights and dignity of the residents are respected.
