I am a resident of Durango with multiple sclerosis and I am also legally blind. I was recently evicted from my HUD supplemented, low income, disability apartment at Tamarin Square for the reason of associating with another tenant who legally smokes medical marijuana. This person was also evicted. I was given a 30-day notice to evict but was told it probably would be worked out and not to worry.
Two days ago I was met at my door by the manager and six sheriff's deputies there to physically remove me. All my belongings were dropped outside on the curb and I was told I was not allowed on the property anymore. This was nine days before I was scheduled to receive my next disability check. I have no idea of where I am to go. I am in a motel today that was paid for by my friends. Where the justice is in this? While I was watching the presidential debates and speeches during the election I was filled with hope that Obama spoke of. Now I really don't have any.
