Brickbat: Still Interested?


In 1993, Jeanette Taylor, then a 19-year-old mother, applied for a housing voucher from the Chicago Housing Authority. The CHA responded in 2004 only to tell her she could not have her son on the lease. Taylor, now a city alderwoman, recently received a letter from the CHA in May saying she had made it to the top of the waiting list and asked if she still wanted the voucher.
