  16. I agree, no more section eights. They bring the property values down. I’m sorry there are so many single mothers out there, who don’t work or won’t work, but that does not give them the right to just get something for free. NO MORE SECTION EIGHTS. I am a single mother and work hard to support my family and two children, no more free handouts.
