DeStefano to assist hurricane victims

I've been away for the last few days so I'm catching up on things so sorry for the delay.

New Haven Mayor John DeStefano shows leadership, which is lacking in Washington, and offers to assist hurricane refugees with housing.

From the Hartford Courant
Mayor John DeStefano is offering New Haven to hundreds of refugees of Hurricane Katrina.

DeStefano announced Monday that the city will accept up to 100 households, or about 400 men, women and children, to live in New Haven. The plan is for 25 households to be brought to New Haven every two weeks, he said.

Twenty-five public housing units will initially be used, with an equal number available soon after. Appeals also will be made to landlords who have available space.
Way to go Mayor DeStefano.
