Homeowners from developments ranging from Boynton Beach to Parkland gathered at West Palm Beach City Hall Wednesday to meet with Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton, and Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., over Chinese drywall concerns.
Nelson opened the meeting with a call for the resignation of the acting chief of the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission. ”We need to put a fire under the responsible agencies,” said Nelson, who Tuesday penned a letter to the White House saying that the CPSC “is doing too little, too late to help residents of Florida and other states.”
However, homeowners attending the event were much more interested in discussing the possible health effects of living in a home with the tainted product: The plasterboard emits sulfuric gas thought to corrode metal, including air conditioning coils, bathroom fixtures and jewelry.
Now where are the leaders of Mississippi? How much of the Chinese drywall was used in South Mississippi in the Katrina repairs? Why have not our cracker jack Washingt5on big shots cared enough to meet with us to answer our concerns? One of the senators spent time playing the flesh pressing game…stopping at a small resturant and a business on the Coast, but so far he has not shown much leadership other than making an ass of himself in Washington.
If you have concerns about the drywall then I suggest that you by-pass AL:L the state’s worthless reps and go direct to Rep. Wexler of Florida, at least he will knows how to talk to the people.
