THE BLOG THAT WON'T QUIT—10 YEARS AND GOING STRONG
a tale of two sisters
Dana lives in Seattle, and Tracie lives in Germany. They are businesswomen, writers, and humorists. They write about life, dating, and today’s modern woman.
“I have compassion for those truly suffering.
I’ve worked with each resident on a case by case basis. However, everything my parents fought for, picketed banks to get funding for, scraped by, and sacriﬁced to create a legacy, is at risk of being eliminated.
The Pandemic and weak leadership in the City Council with their litany of
new laws protecting these “bad actors” has us (aka: landlords)
operating with our hands cuffed. That’s what I’m working to change."
