Amanda Purcell reports at Columbia-Greene Media that Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) and U.S. Housing and Urban Development Regional Administrator Lynne Patton visited the Bliss Towers public housing on Nov. 1, and said they approved of the improvements there. Over $300,000 in federal funds has been spent recently at the nine-story, 117-unit apartment building for mixed-income residents at the corner of North Second Street. “Bliss Towers has been a blight on the HUD road map for a while and we had been getting complaints so I made it one of my top priorities to get out here and see what residents were talking about,” Patton said. “...This is inexcusable in the United States of America. Everybody deserves to be healthy and housed. It’s amazing to come back and see it [Bliss Towers] on the path to full circle.” Faso spoke about privatizing the public housing. “What I have seen is when you have the private investor coming in they tend to pay much more attention to preserving that investment and ensuring the facilities are maintained properly,” Faso said.
