CES Executive Director & Park LaBrea Tenants Interviewed About Tenant Outrage and Organizing in Response to Continuous Elevators Malfunctioning
KTLK AM 1150 -The David Cruz Show
Weekdays, 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM.
Monday, October 07, 2013
David Cruz, host of KTLK radio's the David Cruz Show, interviews Coalition for Economic Survival Executive Director Larry Gross and Park LaBrea Apartments Tenant Leaders Jason Green and Jon Neustadler regarding the elevators frequently malfunction or are often out of service, requiring them to climb numerous flights of stairs. The complex has 18 towers that are each 13 stories tall and have 153 units. Park LaBrea is the largest rent controlled complex in Los Angeles and biggest housing complex west of the Mississippi.
On October 1, tenants organized a forum on the issue, which resulted in an overflow turnout of some 200 angry tenants who told story after story of being stuck for hours in the elevators or having to walk up many flights of stairs in filthy stairwells. Many were seniors and disabled renters.
