Mr.Hasson Rashid, Central Square
Dear Section 8, Low Income Voucher Tenants, please, renew for another term, the social-emotion contract, I have held with each of you, as your Alliance of Cambridge Tenant (ACT), Board of Directors Representative. Therefore, vote for me in the upcoming ACT election, to be held April 10, 2012.
Peace Be Unto You, dear fellow members of the diverse community and population, of “Low Income Section 8 Voucher Tenants,” of the City of Cambridge, MA. Once again we find ourselves having come full circle, to another Board of Directors (BOD) election, for representative positions at the Citywide Alliance of Cambridge Tenants (ACT) Organization. Once again, I approach you for your vote to help me strengthen the constitutional position, of my social-emotion contract, made with you all, for the purpose of building a sound, viable, and diverse community and population, of Low Income Tenants and Residents. here in the City of Cambridge, MA.
I’m asking you all to reinforce my citywide activity of “Low Income Tenant Representation and Advocacy.” I need your votes, once more to become able to continue the delicate, intricate, and intimate work, of insuring that the voices of the diverse “Low Income Tenant Community and Population,” of Cambridge, MA will definitely be heard and recognized, by the “Status Quo” powers that be, who dictate, and maintain authority in administering the housing related affairs, of our city’s most vulnerable community members and population, namely that is it’s “Diversity of Poor and Low Income Tenants/ Residents.”
At this very important period in contemporary time and history, when I call on you all as team members, marks the anniversary of a three-year journey as your “ACT Section 8 Citywide Tenant Representative and Advocate.” My re-entry into this election for another term is like celebrating and honoring, our history as a citywide tenants organization. We are all part of this celebration and team, and your vote is part of ACT’s survival, celebration, and teamwork, as the only “ Citywide Tenant Organization” of its type in the USA, and I Mr. Hasson J. Rashid, as one of its unique representative of Cambridge’s “Low Income Tenant Population.” A recent city council candidate stated in his campaign for reelection “If You Pull Me, I’ll Push You.” That’s what celebrating teamwork is all about, that’s what the first social-emotion contract, I made with you on my first successful ascent to the office of BOD membership, with the ACT was all about.
Don’t worry the quality of your domestic life and existence is and will be in good hands with me, my track record for the past term as an ACT BOD member speaks for itself and can testify to that. Those of you all that know me personally, know that I’m committed 100% to insuring that “Low Income Tenants Rights to Participate,” and sit at the table of housing management and ownership, in the City of Cambridge, MA, is respected and enforced. Also during the last three years, I have stood out for “Low Income Tenants Rights to Know,” when it came to removing the shroud of secrecy, placed as barriers, erected to prevent “Low Income Tenant Advocates” from getting at the truth, by housing management and ownerships. I have help in efforts with other tenant advocates in our city, when conditions and circumstances, were manipulated to force management and housing ownerships to relate to their fellow “Diverse Low Income Tenant and Resident Community and Population” members. I help do this when the Status Quo and other powers to be, really didn’t feel up to it, or like doing so.
In my diversity of intentions to render sound and viable, efforts and applications, as a struggling “Low Income Tenant Advocate,” my commitment to the “Low Income Tenant Residential Community and Population,” of Cambridge, MA, and ACT, goes even a step further. I have put the second year of my a PhD Candidacy, research and study, in Human Service Nonprofit Agencies Management field, on hold, and on the back burner, just to remain down in the trenches, struggling as a “Low Income Housing Advocate,” with the ACT organization, as part of my social emotional contract, to cross the turbulent and terrible, streams and waters of rental housing turmoil, with you all, my team members from the “Low Income Community and Population” here in Cambridge, MA, so celebrate by voting for me. Therefore, vote for me on April 10, 2012, it is a win/ win situation, because I don’t believe that superior wisdom can be subjugated by inferior wisdom.
