To the editor:
Vote Chulakes-Leetz. You can count on less than two fingers the number of local elected officials who came to the aide of homeowners with defective drywall. Chris Chulakes-Leetz was that sole venturist and we must not forget that.
Leetz spent a great deal of time with defective drywall homeowners understanding the hardships we faced. He visited homes, and offered his help. That help arrived in several ways: He wrote President Obama asking him to declare defective drywall a disaster. He also proposed and had passed a resolution in the City that called on then Gov. Charlie Crist to ask President Obama for disaster relief for victims with bad drywall. Leetz took our plight one step further and wrote legislation and had it passed which eliminated remediation permit fees to homeowners who decided to fix their homes.
Chris Chulakes-Leetz has been there for homeowners with defective drywall. Let's be there for him on Nov. 5, 2013.
