This past Monday, June 20th, BTA members and organizers testified at Springfield City Council to get a resolution passed unanimously encouraging”mortgage holding banks and companies to implement a voluntary moratorium on foreclosures and
no-fault evictions for the residents of the city.” This bold resolution is a big victory, but our work continues.
On Wednesday our coalition sent an open letter to Governor Deval Patrick asking him to endorse our call for the moratorium. (see below). For a pdf version of the city council resolution and open letter to the Governor click here.
