Press Release

RICHMOND – Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) issued this statement about the failing living conditions at Essex Village:

“No family deserves to live in conditions such as the one documented at Essex Village. All individuals – no matter their race, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation – should be treated fairly and have safe and clean shelter. The property managers must address these unhealthy conditions immediately. The families who call this community home, should be able to rest easy in a safe environment after a long day at work and school, not worry about the living conditions.”
