Today Senator Hawley announced that he spoke with Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Ben Carson about the deplorable living conditions at T.E.H. Realty properties in St. Louis and Kansas City. Secretary Carson pledged to Senator Hawley that HUD would get engaged.
Last weekend in St. Louis, Senator Hawley toured one of T.E.H. Realty's worst properties, Bridgeport Crossing. During his tour Senator Hawley witnessed the dangerous and unlivable conditions of multiple Bridgeport Crossing apartments. Last week, Senator Hawley called for federal investigations into T.E.H. Realty properties in both St. Louis and Kansas City that have received federal funding in the past.
