An undated letter was taped up on the elevator door at Salvo about three weeks ago. One of the two elevators was going to be shut down for a week or so for repairs. OK. The weeks go by, and the 220 tenants learned to wait, learned to take the stairs when they were able, learned to mutter. Many of them are disabled, some with walkers, some with wheelchairs. They can’t take the stairs. Now the week of downtime is turning into a month. One of the tenants went over the Gazette to ask them to do a story, and they weren’t interested. More important fish to fry.
And then some time in the last couple weeks the head of the tenant union quit. Maybe the elevator was the final straw. Read the story on Salvo House here
