As you all know, the Provident Realty signs that are on display in front of
each of the apartment sites clearly violate HUD advertising laws. And the
GNOFHAC knows this, as well, because the GNOFHAC has just made another
company, Lexi Properties, comply with HUD advertising laws as they relate to
Fair Housing, by posting "fair housing" language on all of their
advertising, as evidenced by the article below that was taken directly from
GNOFHAC's own website.

N.O.W. it's your turn to file your complaint with the GNOFHAC and demand
that Provident Realty follow all HUD advertising laws as they relate to Fair
Housing. You, too, should receive $49,500.00 from the GNOFHAC, and Provident
Realty, for Provident's negligence in failing to properly inform the public
about Fair Housing when it comes to who they are truly offering to rent
their apartments to. After all, "fair" is "fair," right?

To file your complaint, please call the GNOFHAC at 504-596-2100. For a quick
response, please ask to speak to Mr. James Perry, and tell him Dana Arcement
told you to call. s/Dana Arcement
